Amy Phillips has joined the City of Grand Junction as the new city clerk.
Grand Junction City Manager Greg Caton appointed Phillips to succeed Wanda Winkelmann, who retired in January.
Phillips oversees the operation of the city clerk division, which conducts elections, manages board and commission vacancies, processes and issues liquor licenses, and maintains city records.
She brings to her new duties more than 20 years of experience as a municipal clerk, most recently as city clerk for the City of Durango. She previously served as town clerk and treasurer of Mancos. She holds designation as a Certified Municipal Clerk.
“We are pleased to have Amy join our team,” Caton said. “The city clerk position is a key component of city government, and it was important to get the right person in the role. Amy is a leader in her field, and we are fortunate to have been able to recruit her.”
Phillips said she’s pleased. “I am very honored and excited to serve the City of Grand Junction and look forward to working with such an incredibly talented and professional team.”
