State Rep. Ann Bollin speaks in support of her resolution designating May 2-8 as Municipal Clerks Week in the State of Michigan.
State Rep. Ann Bollin of Brighton Township and the Michigan House today recognized the men and women who serve Michigan communities in the important role of municipal clerk.
The House overwhelmingly adopted Bollin’s resolution to declare May 2-8 as Municipal Clerks Week in the State of Michigan.
“Our local clerks play a vital role in connecting people with their local government,” Bollin said. “Their jobs are incredibly diverse. To name just a few of their duties, clerks serve as election administrators, parliamentarians, record keepers, bookkeepers, FOIA coordinators, public meeting organizers, tour guides, and cemetery sextons. To wear so many hats, clerks must exhibit the highest levels of integrity and great resiliency to get the job done.”
Bollin, who served for 16 years at the Brighton Township clerk, said the Office of the Municipal Clerk is the longest serving profession among public servants, dating back to ancient times when clerks were called upon to record meetings by memory.
“It is my hope that you will join me in showing appreciation to our hardworking clerks for the vital services they perform and their dedication to our communities,” Bollin said.
Rep. Bollin speaks on the House floor Wednesday, prior to House passage of her House Bill 4728, which would prevent state or local emergency orders from prohibiting or limiting graduation ceremonies at schools for the graduating class of 2020 or 2021.
State Rep. Ann Bollin said a metrics-driven plan to end COVID-19 restrictions is long overdue – and while the plan announced by the governor Thursday needs improvement, it moves the state in the right direction by providing more transparency and accountability.
State Rep. Ann Bollin of Brighton Township and the Michigan House today announced a sweeping, bipartisan reform plan that will greatly improve ethics and transparency laws for government officials.
