Reid will start her new position as city clerk for the city of Stonecrest Monday and she is "super excited" for the opportunity.

Reid said she started her career with the city in an interim accounts payable position and transitioned into several positions before being named city clerk in 2012.
"As the city clerk in a small town, you do many many jobs," she said. "I've done these many many jobs for a long time."
Reid said the city council will have to post advertisements for the position to being the search for her replacement. In the meantime, Rachel Baker has been named interim city clerk. Baker has worked for the city for almost two years as a probation officer.
"She's very bright," Reid said.
