I am honored to have served the residents of Middlefield and Rockfall as Town Clerk since 1998. I am a Certified Town Clerk, earning my certification in June 2013. I greatly enjoy helping both long-time and new residents needing property documents, copies of marriage licenses (and at times helping couples find a Justice of the Peace), dog licenses, etc. My duties also include serving as Registrar of Vital Statistics, Assistant Treasurer and Notary Public. In addition, I work closely with the Registrars of Voters, especially during election cycles. One of my duties during election time is to administer absentee ballot voting.
I have been a Middlefield resident for 44 years, and have served on numerous boards and commissions. I have also served as Registrar of Voters, a position that has enabled me to become familiar with the election process and with Connecticut election laws.
As Town Clerk, I am committed to preserving Middlefield’s historical records. I have applied for and received more than $80,000 in grants from the State of Connecticut Public Records Administration, which this office has used to electronically index our town records onto archival paper.
To date, we have scanned and indexed town survey maps dating from 1869 to the present. We also scan land records and meeting minutes of boards and commissions.
In the interest of greater accessibility and transparency of our town government, the Town Clerk’s office posts pertinent information on Middlefield’s website, which we administer.
I am proud to continue to serve you, the residents of Middlefield and Rockfall, and to ask for your support again on Tuesday, Nov. 2.
