Sue began working at the Nevada County District Attorney’s Office as a Clerk II in 1977. In 1985, she went to Placer County Superior Court as a Legal Clerk I. Then in 1989, Sue’s position transferred to the Recorder’s Office. She retired as a senior recorder/election’s technician in December of 2009.
