City Clerk Appointment

City of Santa Rosa Clerk Stephanie Williams

The City of Santa Rosa has appointed Stephanie Williams to serve as City Clerk, a role that serves as the Clerk of the City Council responsible for management of all Council legislative action and proceedings, agenda preparation, recording of meeting minutes, maintenance of board and commission membership rosters, and legal notices required by state and local statutes. The Clerk also serves as the City’s elections official and ensures the City’s compliance with the Public Records Act and the Political Reform Act.

With more than 27 years of experience working in municipal government, including 25 with the City of Santa Rosa, Williams has most recently served as the City Clerk for the City of Healdsburg. Prior to that, she was Deputy City Clerk for the City of Santa Rosa and during that time, was instrumental in helping transition the City to a new, modernized online legislative record management system. Williams also previously served on the City of Santa Rosa’s Inclusion and Diversity Council.

“Following an extensive recruitment and selection process, the City of Santa Rosa is very pleased to appoint Ms. Williams as City Clerk,” said Santa Rosa City Manager Sean McGlynn. “Her experience, leadership, and vast institutional knowledge will be an asset to this organization.”

Williams is a longtime member of the International Institute of Municipal Clerks (IIMC) and achieved her Certified Municipal Clerk designation through the IIMC in 2012. She is now working on obtaining her Master Municipal Clerk designation. She is also a member of the City Clerks Association of California (CCAC) and serves as a mentor through the CCAC helping others to achieve their Certified Municipal Clerk’s designation. A graduate of Empire College, Williams is currently working toward her Bachelor of Arts degree, which she began at Dominican University of California. She has been a resident of Santa Rosa for 40 years.

Williams’ effective start date as Santa Rosa City Clerk is January 27, 2020.
