If you were in charge of hiring an employee for a very important position in your office, would you hire the least qualified candidate? Or would you hire the one that has the certifications and education that makes the candidate the best for the position?
As residents of the City of DeKalb, you will be charged with electing (hiring) a new City Clerk on April 9, 2013. The office of City Clerk is the oldest among public servants, and provides the professional link between the citizens, the local governing bodies and agencies of government at other levels.
It is important to elect the right candidate. I am that candidate. I am the only City Clerk candidate that is a Certified Municipal Clerk, a certification that takes about 4 years to obtain. I worked for the City of DeKalb for 19 years, so I know municipal government. I have been the Clerk in Maple Park for almost 2 years. In 2011, I was named “Rookie of the Year” by the Municipal Clerks of Illinois, because of my dedication to municipal government.
I was born and raised in DeKalb, went to DeKalb schools, and I have lived in DeKalb for almost all of my 51 years on earth. I’ve been married for 32 years and I have 2 grown children. I am an active member of the American Legion Auxiliary Post #66. You can find out more about me on my website – www.
I would like to be YOUR City Clerk. I believe in DeKalb, respect the residents and care about the community that we share.
On April 9th, WRITE-IN Liz Cliffe Peerboom for DeKalb City Clerk!
