BANGOR, Maine — Though she said Wednesday night that she will miss the people she has met during her more than seven years as Bangor’s city clerk, Patti Dubois also noted that she won’t miss her daily 120-mile round-trip commute from her Waterville home.
Dubois, who has served as Bangor’s clerk since the fall of 2004, has accepted a similar post in her hometown. Her last day on the job here is Friday.
On Wednesday, councilors said their farewells to Dubois, whose legacy includes overhauling and streamlining Bangor’s election procedures and polling places.
Councilors appointed Dianne Lovejoy, who has worked alongside Dubois for more than two years, as interim city clerk.
Dubois was no stranger to city government when she accepted Bangor’s job offer, having held positions since 1989 in Waterville’s public works department and the assessor’s offices in Waterville and Bath. She also served as Waterville’s city clerk from 2001 to 2004.
