Thank You from the Clerk’s office
In follow-up to election season, the City Clerk’s Office extends its gratitude to Ward officials, poll workers, and volunteers for their tireless efforts ensuring Concord residents could exercise their right to vote. We remain grateful to our polling locations as well as the vast number of municipal employees across all departments within the City who assist us in conducting elections.
A special shout out to The Works Café, Don Brueggemann, and his staff for their continued generosity in providing Ward officials, as well as members of the City Clerk’s Office, with bagels to start our election days.
Last but not least, thank you to our family members for their never-ending support while we worked extra hours to ensure elections full of transparency and integrity.
