San Marcos City Clerk Sherry Mashburn is leaving her job next month to take the same position in College Station.

The College Station City Council announced the hiring during its special meeting on July 13. Mashburn is scheduled to start her new job on Aug. 16.

“Sherry has made many significant improvements to the services provided by the city clerk’s office during her tenure,” San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz said. “The city has received state recognition for vital statistics management and we have reached a higher level in many other areas. We appreciate her service here and wish her well in her new post.”

Mashburn joined the City of San Marcos in 2008 and has been responsible for official records of city council meetings, records management, board appointments, public notices, city elections, birth and death records and passports, and support services for the city council.

“This was a difficult decision for me because I have grown to love the San Marcos community and the city of San Marcos employee family,” Mashburn said. “It has been a privilege to work with such an outstanding City Council who dedicate so much of their time serving the citizens of San Marcos.”

Mashburn’s career in municipal government includes being city clerk in San Marcos (2008 to present), city secretary in Bee Cave (1999 to 2008) and tax assessor-collector for the City of Katy (1987 to 1993).

“Sherry is extremely well respected by her peers in Texas and across the country,” College Station Mayor Nancy Berry said. “It was obvious that we, as a council, had a chance to hire a professional who is considered a leader in her field. We’re confident she’ll fit in well with our staff.”

Outgoing College Station City Secretary Connie Hooks announced in March that she would retire July 31 after serving the city for a total of 25 years.
