Goodall named Texas Municipal Clerk of 2020
Wednesday, November 4, 2020 by Jo Clifton
The Texas Municipal Clerks Association has named Austin City Clerk Jannette Goodall as its Municipal Clerk of the Year for 2020. Mayor Steve Adler took a few minutes to congratulate Goodall at last Thursday’s City Council meeting. Council Member Natasha Harper-Madison said she was surprised that Goodall had not been sainted, given the amount of patience required for the job. In addition to that honor, Goodall was also elected treasurer of the Texas Municipal Clerks Association at its annual meeting last week. The organization has more than 1,030 members throughout Texas and operates the Texas Municipal Clerks Certification Program at the University of North Texas in Denton. Goodall, who has been Austin’s city clerk since early 2013, has worked for the city for more than 20 years.
