Wendy Wood becomes Milpitas’ new City Clerk

The City of Milpitas has a new City Clerk.

With previous City Clerk Mary Lavelle having retired at the end of 2020, City Manager Steve McHarris has appointed Wendy Wood to the position. Wood was previously City Clerk in Campbell for five years, and Deputy City Clerk there for over five years prior.

In a statement, McHarris praised the new addition to the city staff: “Her diligence, organization, and leadership will be a strong addition to our team. I am confident that her skills and genuine desire to help others will be immediately evident.”

The City Clerk’s office creates records from City Council meetings and oversees their storage and maintenance. It is also responsible for ensuring the accessibility of City documents to the public in the interest of transparency. The office further ensures City compliance with local, state, and federal statutes such as the Brown Act and the Public Records Act. 

It was in 2014 when Wood received her designation as a Certified Municipal Clerk from the International Institute of Municipal Clerks. Wood holds a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from San Jose State University. As of now, she is working toward a Master Municipal Clerk certification. Previously, she graduated from the Santa Clara County Leadership Academy.

Wendy Wood started her first day as City Clerk on January 27.
