Westminster taps Fitch for City Clerk

Posted

Abby Fitch, Westminster's senior deputy clerk for two years, will be the City Clerk full time, city councilors agreed Dec. 21.

The Westminster City Council confirmed Fitch as the City's next City Clerk at their Dec. 21 meeting.

Fitch was selected for the position after a nationwide search. She brings a solid background and many years in public service to her new position. Most recently, she has served as the City's senior Deputy City Clerk since 2019 and as Interim City Clerk since October.

During COVID, Fitch led the effort to move City Council meetings to virtual formats and helped develop new methods for constituent engagement and comment during the meetings. She helped create Westminster's first Civic Academy for residents, received her Certified Municipal Clerk designation, and coordinated the summer and fall elections for the City all during 2021. She is looking forward to implementing a new agenda software for Westminster in the coming year.

Prior to joining Westminster, Fitch worked for the City of Aurora as a senior aide to the Mayor and Council where she served as a resource for Aurora's elected officials. In that role, she created Aurora's Civic Academy, a civic engagement program, and had extensive constituent interaction.

She has also assisted with coordinated elections in Arapahoe, Douglas, Adams, and Jefferson County and served as a Program Administrator for the University of Colorado at Denver.

An Idaho native, Fitch received her Bachelor's of Science in International Economics from Texas Tech University and has completed graduate work in Public Administration at both Texas Tech and CU-Denver. She has resided in Westminster for 20 years and enjoys riding her bicycle and E-bike around town.
