Anita Roby, council information specialist
Legislative Support Unit, City Clerk’s Office
Council information specialist Sybil Mc Millan nominated Anita for being the most positive employee and person overall that she knows:
“Anita Roby keeps employees in the City Clerk’s Office upbeat with a very positive energy. When you ask her a work-related question, she’s always willing to help and never makes you feel you’re intruding on her time. She shows employees they are valued by responding to colleagues in a very positive manner when she is needed for assistance.
“Anita accepts extra work beyond her everyday duties, for example working on a new Citywide computer system to iron out the kinks. She lifts the morale of all employees every day, sharing stories and encouraging coworkers in their work. She is a motivator and brings out the best in others.
“Anita leads by example. She troubleshoots problems with the computer on her own most of the time and shares her resolutions with everyone. Oftentimes she solves problems that are a win-win for everyone. Anita always has new ideas to improve processes in our department and shares them. She is always looking for new ways and concepts to get the job done.
“Anita assists walk-in customers and over-the-phone customers with a very pleasant attitude, and customers are always very thankful for her assistance.
“Anita takes on projects or requests that can take hours throughout a week to research, yet she always accepts the challenge with a smile.
“Anita goes above and beyond her job as a council information specialist.”
