Dear Mayor Elliott and Members of the Lowell City Council,
I am pleased to announce that I have appointed Cheryl Robertson as the City Treasurer/ Collector. She comes highly recommended and has 15 years of experience in municipal government as well as 10 years of experience in private industry, the combination of which will serve the City of Lowell quite well.
Cheryl received a bachelor’s degree from the former University of Lowell in Business Administration and Accounting. She began her municipal career as the Town Accountant in Billerica, later becoming the Finance Director for the Town of Hamilton. Cheryl worked in a variety of roles in the public sector, and is both a Certified Public Purchasing Officer and a Certified Governmental Accountant. She also served as the Director of Policy and Administration for the City of Newburyport and later became the city’s Treasurer/ Collector. I am confident Cheryl’s experience in accounting and administration will ensure that the responsibilities and functions of the Treasurer’s Office will be conducted to the highest standard. Her extensive understanding of municipal finance including debt management, cash reconciliation, customer service, and familiarity with the City’s MUNIS financial system, render Cheryl as the ideal candidate for the position.
I look forward to having Cheryl come aboard and I am confident that she will complete what I consider to be a very strong financial team.
Kevin J. Murphy
