City Clerk retires after more than 35 years on the job

KAWARTHA LAKES- Today is Judy Currins last day on the job with the City of Kawartha Lakes after more than 35 years of service to the municipality.

“Judy’s contributions to our community have been outstanding,” comments Mayor Andy Letham. “She is a leader and has always gone above and beyond the call of duty in her work for the municipality.”

Currins began her career as a Municipal Intern with the Village of Omemee in 1982 and was promoted to Clerk Treasurer in 1984. She was instrumental during amalgamation when the County of Victoria and 16 municipalities merged to become the City of Kawartha Lakes.

“It has been a great privilege to work with Judy over the past few years. Her wisdom and knowledge of municipal government have been greatly appreciated,” says Chief Administrative Officer Ron Taylor. “We will miss her greatly and wish her all the best in her retirement.”

For the past 15 years Judy has held the position of City Clerk and has been a key member of the Senior Management Team leading the City of Kawartha Lakes. During this time Judy has had a positive impact on those working closely with her.

“Judy is more than a manager, she has been a mentor, inspiration and a leader for me and all Clerks Office staff past and present,” says Joel Watts, Deputy Clerk. “We will miss her wisdom, guidance and sense of humour. She leaves a legacy that Kawartha Lakes will benefit from for years to come.”

“On behalf of myself and Council I would like to thank Judy for all her years of service and congratulate her on a well-deserved retirement.” – Mayor Andy Letham

Congrats Judy!
