La Crosse’s city clerk is resigning at the end of the year.
Teri Lehrke has sent a letter to Mayor Kabat, saying that she will leave office on December 30th.
In the letter, Lehrke says she has ‘decided to do what’s best for myself and my family.’
Lehrke has been city clerk for 27 years, and her seat comes up for election in April.
She has worked for the city of La Crosse for 38 years, and says she is ‘grateful to the voters’ of La Crosse who have elected her seven times.
