At the beginning of February, lifetime Algoma resident Erin Mueller became the facilitator for the city office. Mueller was originally attracted to the position a few years ago.
Mueller has also worked in customer service and in banking, roles she thinks helped prepare her to take on the clerk duty. She credits customer service for helping with people skills and called working in banking an eye opening experience. She says she learned a lot about land information, legal descriptions, and other topics that people don’t generally associate with banking.
One of the qualities of the position that drew Mueller was the prime opportunity to serve her community. So far, Mueller has said the position has been good and a learning experience. She has enjoyed getting educated on the intricacies of how the town works.
While it is a lot to keep up, Mueller is thankful for the help from staff she works with. She will need the help from the fellow staff and election workers with Spring elections around the corner.
