Town clerk recognized / May 06, 2010
Recognizing the vital and appreciated services performed by Municipal and Deputy Clerks in serving the changing needs of their respective communities, the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) has declared this week, May 2-8 as Municipal Clerks Week. The recognition was initiated in 1969 by IIMC and is endorsed by all of its members throughout the United States, Canada and 15 other countries. In 1984 President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation officially declaring the first week of May as Municipal Clerks Week.

The Institute lists the typical responsibilities of the clerks as maintaining official council minutes, ordinance books and all records and documents and as keepers of community history and vital records and acting as a key liaison between local government and its citizens.

South Boston Mayor Carroll Thackston this week inked a proclamation, thanking South Boston Town Clerk Jane Jones for her services to the community. The proclamation reads as follows:

Whereas, The Office of the Municipal Clerk, a time honored and vital part of local government exists throughout the world, and

Whereas, The Office of the Municipal Clerk is the oldest among public servants, and

Whereas, The Office of the Municipal Clerk provides the professional link between the citizens, the local governing bodies and agencies of government at other levels, and

Whereas, Municipal Clerks have pledged to be ever mindful of their neutrality and impartiality, rendering equal service to all.

Whereas, The Municipal Clerk serves as the information center on functions of local government and community.

Whereas, Municipal Clerks continually strive to improve the administration of the affairs of the Office of the Municipal Clerk through participation in education programs, seminars, workshops and the annual meetings of their state, province, county and international professional organizations.

Whereas, It is most appropriate that we recognize the accomplishments of the Office of the Municipal Clerk.

Now, Therefore, I, Carroll Thackston, Mayor of South Boston, Virginia, do recognize the week of May 2 through May 8, 2010, as Municipal Clerks Week, and further extends appreciation to our Town Clerk, Jane Jones, Certified Municipal Clerk, and to all Municipal Clerks for the vital services they perform and their exemplary dedication to the communities they represent.

Dated this 2nd day of May, 2010
Carroll Thackston
