SD&G – After more than four decades with the United Counties of SD&G, Clerk Helen Thomson is retiring.

Thomson started with the county in January 1979.

Her retirement date is Dec. 31, 2020.

“I feel very fortunate to have had such a long career at the County and I truly enjoyed my work,” Thomson said in a statement.

Council will review the clerk’s job description this summer before putting out the hiring ad.

The county hopes to have somebody hired by the fall in order to have a transitional period between Thomson and the new clerk.
