Pam Leming began working for the City of Marion in March of 2004 (nearly 15 years ago). She first served in claims for the Controller’s Office, then after a year, she was promoted to Deputy Controller primarily in charge of payroll. In 2012, she moved to the Transportation Department where she remains today as their Administrative Assistant. She also manages administrative tasks for two other departments serving as the Administrative Assistant for the Engineering Department and City Hall Building & Grounds Department for the past 10 years.
Transportation Director Jeff Edwards explained that Leming is an integral part of what makes the Transportation Department successful.
“She’s my right hand. Pam is a big reason that we have a good team. I tell her all the time that she is appreciated, but I wanted her to have this special recognition to tell her how lucky I am for her and all the work that she does,” added Edwards.
Parks & Recreation Office Manager Rose Cadena is a fellow administrative employee who has worked with Leming for nearly 12 years.
“Administrative Assistants behind the scenes do not get the recognition they deserve. She goes above and beyond anytime I call her. She is dependable, hard-working, and helps wherever needed. She is always a pleasure to work with,” expressed Cadena.
