In her letter, Hambrick said, “I appreciate the opportunity to have worked these past four years to make a difference in the great community of Clay. I want to thank all of the super employees at City Hall and the Clay Library for the great job they do daily. I thank you, Mayor, for all your hard work and exceptional leadership. My prayers will be with the city of Clay that all citizens, government and community leaders will strive for excellence in all areas. Our city deserves nothing less.”
