STEVENS POINT — City Clerk John Moe has announced today he will be stepping down from his position as his family relocates to Dane County.
Moe released the following in a statement to the press:
“Today I am announcing that after 13 years, I will be stepping down as City Clerk as my family and I will be relocating to Dane County.
I have truly enjoyed my years as City Clerk serving the good people of Stevens Point. It has been an honor to work with so many outstanding individuals and public servants during my tenure. I cannot express in words my gratitude for having had this opportunity to serve.
I am proud of what I was able to accomplish as Clerk. I implemented reforms that improved customer service and access to license and election information. During my tenure, I returned tens of thousands of dollars to the City’s General Fund through fiscal responsibility. I also oversaw the implementation of extensive election law changes. I am proud of authoring the Stevens Point Citizens’ Right to Speak ordinance and working with state legislators to pass a law modernizing the publication of budget amendment notices.
Again, it has truly been a great honor to have served the people of this community as City Clerk. During the next two weeks, I will be working with my staff to prepare for the transition. My last day in office will be Friday, September 21, 2018.
The City Clerk’s position will be filled by mayoral appointment with the consent of the Common Council.
