Parker County Today March 2018 - Page 87

Continued from page 78 Registered Municipal Clerk desig- nation after completing the TRMC certification program through the University of North Texas. The certi- fication is valid for five years; I just completed my first recertification last fall. I am grateful for the oppor- tunities I have had with the city. I enjoy my job, the people I have met, the friends I have made, and I look forward to serving as Weatherford’s city secretary for several more years.    PCT: What is your favorite novel? ML: The Chronicles of Narnia   PCT: What do you do to decompress? ML: It has changed over the years… aerobic workout…talking it all out while my husband listens…the punching bag on Wii Sport…chilling at home watching movies or Netflix with my husband and our children.   PCT: What is something people don’t know about you? ML: I have a certain knack and great patience for finding four-leaf clovers. (And that’s the only thing I exhibit that much patience for!)   PCT: What would you most like to be remembered for? ML: Generosity and helpfulness, though most people seem to remem- ber the curly red hair.    PCT: If you could have lunch with any one, either living or dead from history, who would it be?  ML: Oh my goodness….Jesus… Lincoln…anyone from a 1940s big band like Glenn Miller or Benny Goodman. I’d love to take my kids to lunch with my grandpa Elmer so he could meet them.   PCT: If you had to do another job than what you’re doing, what would you do? ML: I would love to be a translator, fluent in German as that’s my heri- tage and Spanish because it is more helpful than German is in this part of the world.   PCT: What is your impact to Parker County? 85
