City clerk retires after 35 years

Judy Currins will be missed by many as she retires after serving the City of Kawartha Lakes for more than 35 years.

“It has been a great privilege to work with Judy over the past few years. Her wisdom and knowledge of municipal government have been greatly appreciated,” says Chief Administrative Officer Ron Taylor.

“We will miss her greatly and wish her all the best in her retirement.”

Judy began her career as a municipal intern with the Village of Omemee in 1982 and was promoted to Clerk Treasurer in 1984. She was instrumental during amalgamation when the County of Victoria and 16 municipalities merged to become the City of Kawartha Lakes.

“Judy’s contributions to our community have been outstanding,” says Mayor Andy Letham.

“She is a leader and has always gone above and beyond the call of duty in her work for the municipality.”

For the past 15 years Judy has held the position of City Clerk and has been a key member of the Senior Management Team leading the City of Kawartha Lakes. 

“Judy is more than a manager, she has been a mentor, inspiration and a leader for me and all Clerks Office staff past and present,” says Joel Watts, deputy clerk. “We will miss her wisdom, guidance and sense of humour. She leaves a legacy that Kawartha Lakes will benefit from for years to come.”
