Consider Appointment of Gloria Leija for the position of City Clerk.
It is recommended that Mayor and Council approve the appointment of Gloria Leija as City Clerk, pursuant to Article IV, Section 2 of the City Charter.
The City's Charter, Article IV, Section 2, states ... The City Manager shall, with approval of the council, appoint an officer, who shall have the title of City Clerk, who shall be responsible to the City Manager, and who shall give notice of all council meetings, keep the journal of the council's proceedings authenticated by his or her signature, and record in full in books kept for the purposes, all ordinances and resolutions, and performs such other duties as shall be required by this charter or law.

As with all Director level positions, a national recruitment was completed for the City Clerk's position vacated by Remilie S. Miller in November 2016. Upon the closing of the recruitment, an interview process was conducted for four (4) finalists. Through this process, Mrs. Leija was selected to fill the vacant position. Gloria served as the City Clerk for the City of Casa Grande for 19 years before retiring in January 2012. More recently she served as the Town Clerk for the Town of Wickenburg before deciding to return to her home and position with the City of Casa Grande. She developed job skills and knowledge base by obtaining her Master's Degree in Education from Northern Arizona University, and has also obtained designation as a Certified Municipal Clerk (CMC), Certified Municipal Election Official, and Certified State of Arizona Election Official.

It is therefore recommended that Mayor and Council accept the recommendation and approve Ms. Leija as City Clerk.
Do not approve the appointment.
