East Spencer town clerk, finance officer resigns to take another job
By Shavonne Walker
EAST SPENCER — Longtime town clerk and finance officer Anneissa Hyde has resigned effective Wednesday, town officials said. She has been with East Spencer since January 2010.
Her departure comes on the heels of the resignation of Town Administrator David Jaynes, who left after 15 months on the job. Interim Town Administrator F.E. Isenhour was quick to say that he does not believe Hyde’s departure had anything to do with Jaynes leaving.
“It was sort of a shock. We were surprised,” Isenhour said.
He said Hyde was not at work Tuesday and Wednesday but sent an email with her resignation letter included.
In the letter, Hyde said: “I have thoroughly enjoyed my tenure with the town of East Spencer, and I thank you for the contributions that you made towards my growth and development. Please accept my apology for leaving with such short notice. I feel the change will be beneficial to my long-term career goals and objectives.”
Hyde said she already has another job but declined to be specific.
“I wish them much success on their projects,” Hyde said of town leaders.
Isenhour said the town board plans to meet Monday to discuss appointing an interim finance officer and clerk. He and administrative assistant Shataira Bailey have taken on many of the duties of the job.
Hyde’s responsibilities as town clerk included administrative support for grant projects and payroll. She previously worked at the East Spencer Housing Authority.
