Former long-time Burlington city clerk to make encore appearance. . . as Graham’s interim city clerk


Former Burlington city clerk Renee Ward has been tapped by Graham’s city council to fill in as interim city clerk in the neighboring city inasmuch as Graham’s clerk, Darcy Sperry, is leaving for a new position at the coast.

Sperry will become the village clerk on Bald Head Island, whose former clerk, Daralyn Spivey, a seven-year veteran of the post, moved on to become clerk for the Brunswick County board of commissioners.
