Campbell County Fiscal Court Clerk Paula Spicer was honored last week at her last Fiscal Court meeting before reveling in retirement.
State Rep. Mike Clines presented Spicer with a citation of appreciation from the House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Kentucky to recognize her achievements. Spicer has served Campbell County as the Fiscal Court Clerk since 2008—just a small chunk of her over 40 years in local government.
Spicer’s last day with the county will be this Friday, March 31.
“The House of Representatives of the Commonwealth of Kentucky hereby recognizes and honors Paula Spicer upon the auspicious occasion of her retirement as the respected Campbell County Fiscal Court Clerk, having served with great distinction in local government for more than 40 years,” Clines read from the citation of appreciation.
Spicer served 14 years with the Campbell County Fiscal Court, three years with the Commonwealth Attorney 17th Judicial Circuit, and 24 years with the city of Covington. Aside from her roles as a city clerk, felony court coordinator, and fiscal court clerk, she is also an honored Kentucky Colonel and certified Kentucky Municipal Clerk.
Clines wished Spicer his commendation and gratitude on behalf of the House of Representatives for her years of service and extended her best wishes for a well-earned retirement.
“There is an old-time comedian, who was also a wise man, that said, ‘we are all ignorant except on different topics,’ and oh Paula, you are good at a whole lot of things that I’m not good at,” Campbell County Judge/Executive Steve Pendery said. “Among them are being detail-oriented, being thoughtful, kind, and courteous to the citizens you deal with, and friendly to all of us.”
“It’s been rewarding, and I don’t know what else I would have done,” Spicer said. “I’ve enjoyed it and take pride in my work.”
