Jane Laseter, who has served as the Morgan County’s clerk for the past 21 years, is retiring at the end of the year. The Morgan County Board of Commissioners (BOC) wished her well for the future at the last regular meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 5, which was Laseter’s last BOC meeting before she retires at the end of the month.
“We are thankful for the years of service that Jane has dedicated to Morgan County and its citizens. We hate to lose such a valuable asset to our organization, but we are excited that she begins the next chapter in her life,” said Adam Mestres, county manager.
“Jane has served the county very well during her 21 years as county clerk. She is very knowledgeable and kept our county office running smoothly. We will miss Jane because she was like a second county manager. She knew what we should have and what we shouldn’t have. We wish her the best and we hope that she has a great retirement,” said BOC Chairman Donald Harris.
“I think Jane has been a valuable member of county government and administration. Her input has been most valuable to us. She is loyal and works very hard at her job. She will be greatly missed. Her heart has always been for what is best for the people of Morgan County,” said Commissioner Andy Ainslie. Laseter views her retirement as a bittersweet moment in her life.
“I am both sad and excited,” said Laseter. “I am looking forward to rest and more time with my grandchildren. But I am said because the people here have been my friends and a second family to me all these years.”
