Melissa Crowder appointed WeHo City Clerk

West Hollywood City Council appointed Melissa Crowder as the new City Clerk at their meeting Monday night.

The City Clerk is the local official for elections, local legislation, the Public Records Act, the Political Reform Act, and the Brown Act (open meeting laws). Before and after the City Council takes action, the City Clerk ensures that actions are in compliance with all federal, state, and local statutes and regulations and that all actions are properly executed, recorded, and archived.

The City Clerk’s Division is a service division within the City upon which the City Council, Commissioners/Advisory Boardmembers/Task Force Members, all City departments, and the general public rely for information regarding the operations and legislative history of the City. The City Clerk serves as the liaison between the public and City Council and provides related municipal services.

Crowder was previously Assistant City Clerk. Her predecessor was Yvonne Quarker.

Ms. Crowder, you are indeed prepared and deserving of the City Clerk position. I thank you for providing me with a research starting point. You have to be one this council’s best appointments, including the new city manager. Most of the appointments from this council are low handing fruit paybacks for getting them elected and/or glad handing appointees with not experience.
Congratulations, Ms. Crowder.

Irrespective of Ms. Crowder’s clear qualifications for the position, your dismissive suggestion is evidence of the arrogant condescension of the bureaucracy enabling your blather. Congratulations Melissa! Enjoy your retirement, Jeff, now sit down.
