The Genesee County legislature’s long-time clerk has announced her retirement.
Carolyn Pratt, 64, has served as clerk to 35 legislators since she joined the legislature in 1988. She will retire March 22.
“I have worked in this job for 25 years," Pratt said. It’s a wonderful. Wonderful position, but it’s demanding. It’s just time for me to do all the things I’ve put on hold for 25 years.”
Born in and a resident of Batavia, Pratt says she will not be making any major life changes and plans to stay right here. As far as other retirement plans, though, she plans on “Traveling, visiting with friends and relatives, (and) everything that I couldn't do between 8:30 in the morning and sometimes 8:30 or 9 o’clock at night.”
The SkidmoreCollege alumna has two granddaughters ages 5 and 6 and wants to spend more time with them as well, taking them to museums and the beach.
Pratt worked in the private sector earlier in her career and came back to Batavia after about 14 years when she began with the county legislature.
