San Marcos City Clerk Sherry Mashburn has accepted a position as the city secretary in College Station. She will begin her duties there on Aug. 16.
The College Station City Council the appointment at a special meeting Monday night.
Mashburn joined the City of San Marcos in 2008, carrying responsibilities 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-present), city secretary in Bee Cave (1999-2008) and tax assessor-collector for the City of Katy (1987-1993).
“Sherry has made many significant improvements to the services provided by the city clerk’s office during her tenure,” said San Marcos Mayor Susan Narvaiz. “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.”
Said College Station Mayor Nancy Berry, “Sherry is extremely well respected by her peers in Texas and across the country. 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.”
