Bristol Celebrates Municipal Clerk Week

L-R, Dawn LaBella, Patricia Ochoa, Jennifer LaPierre, Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu, Marriya Connelly, Merina Bigos and Town Clerk Therese Pac.

The City of Bristol is celebrating Municipal Clerk Week, the 49th annual event to recognize and honor Municipal Clerks. Established in 1969 by the International Institute of Municipal Clerks, the first full week of May is dedicated to the essential role Municipal Clerks play in local government.

The Municipal Clerk is the longest service office of local government. Political scientist William Bennett Munro stated, “The department demands versatility, alertness, accuracy and patience. The public does not realize how many loose ends of City administration this office pulls together.”

“The Town and City Clerk provides vital services for local government and the community. The duties of the office have expanded greatly over the past 50 years, requiring the need to constantly adapt,” stated Bristol City Clerk, Therese Pac.

“The City Clerk’s office is literally the “front door” for people accessing municipal information from preparing agendas, taking minutes, maintaining ordinance and resolution files, keeping the
municipality’s historical records, processing permits and serving as the clearinghouse for information about the local government. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated staff,” stated Mayor Ellen Zoppo-Sassu.
