Two residents fairly new to Wilmington are vying for the post of city clerk.
Judith Radosevich is running for the post of clerk for the first time, having been appointed to the post three years ago by Mayor Marty Orr.
“I love the politics in this town,” she said, adding that the job can be stressful and the meetings long. However, she enjoys knowing what’s going on, she said.
As city clerk she attends all the meetings of the council, along with the closed sessions, and is charged with typing up the minutes. She and her husband retired to Wilmington five years ago, after falling in love with the town while visiting friends, she said.
“I’m loyal and I’m dedicated,” Radosevich said.
Amber Trainor, 28, moved to Wilmington just a year ago and said she is running for clerk “because I wanted to get involved in local government.”
She has just completed eight years in the U.S. Air Force. Her experience there in information management where she filed documents and maintained records helps prepare her for the post of city clerk, she said.
“I care about it being a safe and healthy community because my children will grow up here. I love the small-town community. I like that the neighbors here genuinely care about each other,” she said.
She attends meetings of the Wilmington Coalition for a Healthy Community, and is a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Wilmington, and serves on the PTA for Grace Lutheran School.
