City Clerk Michelle Whitten:
- Jill Davis is credited with tireless work on gaining a 2% discount on health insurance by undertaking hours of Wellness training and research.

From TOT: Use a password keeper app so you have only one password to recall - my personal fave is MasterlockVault, just like the trusted name in padlocks and free.

Another user uses the same answer to those Security questions. Regardless of the question, her answer is “orange.”
