The Ely Times

Jennifer Lee was sworn in on Tuesday as the new  City Clerk.

Lee has been with the City of Ely for the past eight and a half years, and has ran five previous elections while acting as city clerk.  

Mayor Melody VanCamp said, “When Robert Switer left, I put a huge responsibility on Jennifer to ‘man the ship’ and that task she did well as we had many changes between being short staffed. 

“All while the primary election and the dreaded budget, was taking place, and with her attention to detail and knowledge she demonstrated that she can fill those shoes of City Clerk.” 

Switzer had been city administrator since 2014. He resigned in late January. Recently, Switzer was appointed city manager of Yerington.

In February 2018, there was a personnel session for Switzer. Most issues were budgetary. Switzer provided explanations and exhibits of supporting documentation in his support.
