City Clerk Julie Folcik Resigns
It is with a heavy heart that I report to you today that my friend, Costa Mesa City Clerk Julie Folcik, tendered her voluntary resignation today, effective today - Friday the 13th.
At no time during the three months since CEO Tom Hatch placed her on paid administrative leave in the wake of the City having missed the filing deadline for Jim Righeimer's Charter did she ever discuss the circumstances of that event with me. Through it all she maintained professional composure and a positive attitude.
GRATEFUL FOR HER FRIENDS
In a private message to me this afternoon Julie expressed sadness for leaving the position she's held for more than a decade and that she's grateful to all her friends at City Hall for their kindness, support and encouragement during her tenure. She's shown above with her former co-worker, Christine Cordon.
HER FUTURE IS OPEN...
She gave me no indication what her future plans might be. I certainly want to wish her well.
