City of Gainesville Appoints New Clerk of the Commission


The City of Gainesville is pleased to announce the appointment of Omichele Gainey to the position of Clerk of the Commission. Gainey succeeds former Clerk of the Commission Kurt Lannon in the position, who retired earlier this month after serving the city for 24 years.

Gainey was selected by the City Commission this afternoon after a national recruitment effort. After the search, the City Commission narrowed the field of candidates and they interviewed a total of four candidates earlier this week, both as a group and individually.

Gainey has served the City of Gainesville for two years, both at Gainesville Regional Utilities and the Office of the Clerk of the Commission.
