Deputy City Clerk Honored for Service

City Manager Jim Scholl, during this week’s City Commission meeting, presented Deputy City Clerk Angela Budde with a gold watch in honor of her 20 years of service with the City.

Budde began her career with the City with the fleet department in 1998. She then worked in engineering and IT as well as public works before she moved into the City Clerk’s office as Deputy City Clerk in 2008.

In 2013, Budde earned her Certified Municipal Clerk designation from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. In 2016, she was elected to the board of directors of the Florida Association of City Clerks and is serving her second term. In 2015, Budde was elected to serve as a Trustee on the General Employees’ Pension Board, and is serving her second term here as well.

“Twenty years of service is not an easy feat,” Budde commented as she accepted the recognition.   “As I reflect back on my career, I am thankful that the City provided me with the opportunities for self-development and professional growth and continue to support my professional development.”

“We are honored to have an employee of her caliber for all of these years, in all of the departments she’s worked for,” said Scholl as he presented Budde with a traditional gold watch and with a City challenge coin denoting her 20 years of service.
