Current Clay City Clerk Bobby Christmas will no longer be working in the position. Christmas says he has thoroughly enjoyed his time serving in the position.
“I have lived in the city of Clay for over 19 years and love living here and being a part of it,” Christmas said. ” I will continue to support the city for as long as God allows me to be a part of it. My prayers will be with Mayor Webster and the administration as they move forward.”
The following statement was issued Thursday, Nov. 15 by Bobby Christmas on The City of Clay Facebook page:
In December 2002, I retired from the Postal Service to take a job as City Clerk for the City of Clay. During my tenure as City Clerk, I have had the privilege of serving under two Mayors and appreciate the opportunity to have done so. I have thoroughly enjoyed being the City Clerk for these ten years and I am grateful to those who made it possible for me to serve
. During this time, I have had the privilege of meeting many wonderful people and this is one of the things I have enjoyed most. The flexibility the Mayors and City Council members have given me to be a part of the decision making process has afforded me the opportunity to meet people at all levels of government, as well as people in the private sector, and I thank them for that.
State law states, and I understood this when I took this job, that the City Clerk is a position appointed by the Mayor and Council every four years. This administration has decided they would like to go in another direction in the City Clerk’s position and I totally understand and have no ill will toward anyone for this decision. I have lived in the city of Clay for over 19 years and love living here and being a part of it. I will continue to support the city for as long as God allows me to be a part of it. My prayers will be with Mayor Webster and the administration as they move forward.
I understand that Mr. Ronnie Dixon will be the new City Clerk. I know him to be a Christian man and will be a great fit for the City. Congratulations Ronnie.
I wish I could say I could retire at this point but I am not quite there yet. Anyone that knows of any job openings please keep me in mind. I thank my God for every remembrance of each and every one of you and wish you all the very best.
