The new city clerk looks a lot like the interim city clerk in Menlo Park, and in fact, the two are one and the same. The city announced on Nov. 13 that Pam Aguilar has been promoted to the permanent post.
She stepped in as interim clerk following the departure of Margaret Roberts, who left at the end of May to take a position with the city of Hercules.
Ms. Aguilar has served as deputy city clerk for Menlo Park since 2009. Prior to that she held the position in Belmont for about two years and worked as deputy clerk for the First District Court of Appeals.
She received a bachelor's degree from UC Berkeley and completed a master's degree in public administration at California State University, East Bay.
She says she's looking forward to implementing more technology to streamline city clerk processes as well as ensuring public records are organized and accessible.
