Edmond city clerk decorates her splint for retirement
Edmond City Clerk Nancy Nichols showed up for her retirement celebration with Christmas decorations highlighting her injured leg. She is retiring after 28 years with the city.
“I am totally overwhelmed,” Nichols said after Mayor Charles Lamb read a citation from members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives. “When I took the job as a Kelly Girl in 1984 for three weeks, I never ever believed I would have a 28-year career here.”
The mayor said he worked with Nichols for 20 of her 28 years with the city.
Lamb credited her for leading the city's fight to get Congress to forgive a $10 million debt the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers claimed Edmond owed on water payments at Arcadia Lake.
“Nancy Nichols is professional, flexible and adaptable,” Lamb said.
Nichols has contracted to continue lobbying for the city for the next year.
