MARLBOROUGH – The Marlborough City Council voted unanimously on Monday to reappoint City Clerk Steven Kerrigan for a three-year term expiring on May 20, 2025.

This vote came as City Councilors celebrated Kerrigan for his contributions to the city of Marlborough.

“Steve stepped up to the plate and did not miss a beat after [former City Clerk] Lisa [Thomas’] departure,” City Council President Michael Ossing wrote in a letter to fellow City Councilors.

“I have been proud to work with Steve and his dedicated staff members,” Ossing continued, noting staff members Wilson Chu and Melissa Peltier.

Councilor Mark Oram noted Ossing’s letter recommending Kerrigan for the position while further applauding Kerrigan’s work.

“I agree with you 100 percent on his availability, the courteousness you get at his office, but more important how fast he can move our meeting with you when he speed reads,” Oram said.

Councilor David Doucette said that Kerrigan had done an outstanding job in Marlborough. 

Kerrigan first joined the Clerk’s office in 2012 as an assistant city clerk, according to his LinkedIn page. He was subsequently appointed to the City Clerk position in an interim capacity following Thomas’ retirement on March 15, 2019 before being appointed to a permanent position on May 20 of that same year.
