Ritchie named new clerk for Hall County Commission

By Staff
GAINESVILLE - The Hall County Board of Commissioners has hired former Habersham County Clerk Lisa Ritchie as the new commission clerk for Hall County, according to a statement released Friday afternoon by Hall County Government.

In addition to serving as clerk for Habersham County, she also previously worked as a Royalties Accountant and Billing/Order Entry Specialist for Infor Global Solutions in Alpharetta and as an Accounts Payable Specialist, Human Resources Clerk and Payroll Clerk for Truett-McConnell College.

The commission clerk directs the activities necessary to prepare for Board of Commissioners meetings and dispenses information regarding decisions and actions of the Commission.

Ritchie begins work on April 7.
