Marlborough – City Clerk Lisa Thomas is being considered for reappointment by the city council, at the recommendation of Council President Ed Clancy. She has served in the position for the past nine years and will continue until February 28, 2020 if approved.
In his request to councilors, Clancy said: “Ms. Thomas and the staff have far exceeded the goals set for them and today all types of records are truly just a click away. She is never content with the status quo and is always looking for ways to improve customer service in the office and better ways to conduct the business of the people.” The appointment was referred to the Personnel Committee where she will have an opportunity to explain initiatives undertaken and plans for advancement in the future.
Councilors also referred to the Personnel Committee Mayor Arthur Vigeant’s recommendation for the reappointments of Auditor Diane Smith and Chief Procurement Officer Beverly Sleeper.
“For almost the past 10 years, Ms. Smith has proven to be an invaluable resource for the city and a strong department manager,” said the mayor in his request.
Vigeant praised Sleeper for playing a crucial role in large scale procurements for the Senior Center and the Richer Elementary School project, in addition to overseeing all opportunities for the city in general.
