City Council bids farewell to Pam Perkins

ELLSWORTH — The City Council bid a fond farewell to Councilor Pam Perkins at its regular monthly meeting Monday night.

Perkins, who has served on the council for nine years, is moving with her family to take a job in Atlanta.

“Pam has really come on as a councilor,” said Council Chairman Bob Crosthwaite, who said she asks “smart, well-thought-out questions.”

He noted her work on the Human Resources Committee and helping to make Knowlton Park a reality.

“We’re going to miss you,” Crosthwaite said, “but we thank you for nine years of service.”
