for being selected as Employee of the Month for December 2017.


As the recipient of the award for the Mayor’s Employee of the Month Program, please join us in extending a warm congratulation to Judy in receiving this recognition.  After a review of all of the nominations, the Selection Committee unanimously chose her as the winner for her positive attitude, strong customer service  and teamwork.    


Judy has always worked in the MIS division of the Finance Department.  She began her employment as a part-time keypunch operator clerk on November 16, 1981 and remained in that position until October 1, 1984, when she left her employment for a brief period of time.  Judy returned to her same position on March 11, 1985, and subsequently, on November 6, 1991, she was upgraded to leader-data entry and began working full-time.   Next, on July 1, 2000, Judy’s position was upgraded to GIS Clerk.  On July 1, 2010, Judy’s position was once again upgraded to her current position of Tech Assistant/Clerk A.


Judy is an essential member of the team charged with the responsibility of processing the weekly payroll for all city employees.  She is an integral, key member of the Affordable Care Act reporting process.  Judy manages the city website posting updates and information pertaining to all city departments.


Judy is a vital resource for all payroll related questions.  She is always willing to assist other departments keying entries to the as400 program.  Her dedicated service and professionalism are greatly appreciated by her co-workers in the MIS division as well as each and every city department.   These are just a few of the many reasons the Mayor extends his sincere congratulations and appreciation to Judy for the outstanding attributes she exhibits as Employees of the Month.


Again, congratulations to Judy!
