San Gabriel has appointed a Gloria Molleda as its new Chief City Clerk. She will start work on July 13.
“Molleda’s hiring is an important step forward in the reorganization of the City Clerk’s Office, which will now become a standalone department,” a city press release stated.
Molleda, as the city’s first chief city clerk, will provide in-house expertise and experienced professional leadership to the new department to effectively and efficiently manage city clerk activities. San Gabriel also has an elected City Clerk, who bears the final accountability for the operations of the city clerk’s office, according to government officials. According to the city website starting salary for the Chief City Clerk is $10,227 a month.
Among Molleda’s duties will be to run city municipal elections, implement a records management program and lead all special projects such as Youth in Government.
“Gloria brings with her an outstanding reputation and the skill sets necessary to lead our City Clerk’s Department to new heights,” City Manager Steve Preston said.
Molleda comes to the City of San Gabriel from the City of Rosemead, where she served as city clerk and director of communications. At the city, Molleda implemented an electronic filing system to increase public access to city documents, as well as initiated a live streaming system for City Council meetings. She also managed the city’s social media accounts and website. Previously, Molleda worked as the deputy city clerk in the City of Alhambra and the assistant city clerk in the City of Vernon.
Molleda holds a bachelor’s degree in business management from Woodbury University, and is working toward a master’s degree in public administration from California State University, Northridge.
“I'm excited about taking on this new opportunity and working closely with staff and the San Gabriel community,” Molleda said.
