Angela Reece, a former sheriff's office dispatcher, probation officer and, for the past five years, town clerk in Black Mountain, has been hired as Hendersonville’s new City Clerk.

“The role of City Clerk is of utmost importance to a municipality and Angela’s experience and education make her uniquely qualified to serve as our next City Clerk,” said City Manager John Connet. “The Clerk serves as the direct link between the citizens of the community and their government. We feel Ms. Reece will be a great resource to our City Council, government boards, and the public we serve.”

Reece starts Monday, replacing Tammie Drake, who retires the same day after serving in the role for 25 years.

Reece has more than 17 years of experience in local and state government in Western North Carolina and has dedicated the past five years serving the citizens of the Town of Black Mountain as Town Clerk. Before transitioning into her role as a Clerk, she served the public as a North Carolina Probation/Parole Officer and Haywood County Sheriff’s Office Telecommunicator.

Ms. Reece is a certified North Carolina and International Municipal Clerk and holds a master’s degree in Public Administration as well as a Municipal and County Administration certification from the UNC School of Government.
