One of the busiest city clerk’s offices in New England will be under new leadership after the first of the year.
Springfield, Massachusetts City Clerk Wayman Lee, who was the first black to serve as city clerk when he was appointed in 2006, is retiring after a municipal government career that started in 1988 when he began working for the city as an associate city solicitor.
" It has been a great run," Lee said. " I love this city."
Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno said Lee has done an outstanding job and has been a “tested and true” city employee.
