A New Chapter for Linda Dudek
A New Chapter for Linda Dudek
Linda Dudek, who has served as Killingworth Town Clerk since 2005, is retiring from her position on October 2.

Linda was Assistant Town Clerk for over a decade before becoming Town Clerk. She had also served as an assistant to the Probate Court when it was in Killingworth.

"Linda worked to make the Town Clerk's office as transparent, accessible, and convenient as possible for the public," said First Selectwoman Cathy Iino. "The town owes her a huge debt of gratitude for the way she conducted the office and strengthened its operations."

A few of the many improvements she made were making digital land records available to the public 24/7; introducing an on-line dog license renewal program; creating a records management program for all town departments; organizing the electronic codification and on-line posting of the town charter, ordinances, and regulations.

Perhaps as important as those advances in efficiency are the personal care she gave each individual. She went out of her way to help people who had trouble coming into the office during regular hours or who needed extra reminders about legal requirements. She set a tone of civility and respect that will be a lasting legacy in the Town Clerk's office. Click to read full story »
President's Message
Tim Gannon
Fall activities are on my mind as the weather turns cooler in our region. One of my favorite Chamber events is the pumpkin carving party we hold at Parmelee Farm annually. There are so many creative entries on our display at the end of the day and it's great to see members of our community enjoying the festivities of the season. See the back cover for details and sponsors, I hope to see you there!

Congratulations to Dr. Fair and Killingworth Animal Hospital for their 20 year anniversary of service in our community. If you have a business anniversary or good news to share regarding your business, as a member of the KCC we'd like to help you get the word out. Please send info to our editor, Karen Milano, at krier@killingworthct.com.

Our latest Business after Hours was held at Lavender Pond Farm on September 17th- what a lovely location enjoyed by all. Thank you to the Salafia family for hosting this event. It was great to see so many faces. Our BAH events are a great way to get to know other business owners in the area. We encourage you to look for notification of our next event in upcoming issues. Our next meeting will be held at the library meeting room on October 8th at 7 p.m. Members and prospective members are welcome to attend.
