Town of Davidson Hires New Town Clerk: Betsy Shores
The Town of Davidson announces the hiring of Betsy Shores as our new Town Clerk/Administrative Assistant.
Betsy started on April 16 and is filling the position Carmen Clemsic vacated when she became the recreation program manager in Davidson Parks and Recreation a few months ago. Betsy will perform statutory town clerk responsibilities such as serving as the custodian of official town records, collaborating with town staff to prepare information and agendas for board meetings, preparing board of commissioners meeting minutes, and handling public record requests. She will also complete special projects and provide administrative support to the town manager, assistant town manager, and others in the administration department. Betsy will manage contracts for all departments and sales for Mimosa Cemetery.
Betsy comes to us after almost eight years as an administrative assistant/public information officer for the Town of Cornelius Police Department. She is originally from Buffalo, NY, graduated from Belmont Abbey College, and lives in Cornelius. Betsy is married, has a teenaged daughter, likes to practice yoga, run, and spend time with her family and dog.
“Betsy’s local government experience coupled with her positive, action-oriented attitude and service orientation make her a great fit for the Town of Davidson,” said Town Manager Jamie Justice. “She’ll help us with the required statutory duties, and effectively serve our citizens, mayor, commissioners, and town staff.”
