From Harford County government:
Kim Spence, a 22 year veteran employee with Harford County Government has been named Employee of the Month for October. Spence, the current Chief of Budget and Management Research for the County, has held that position since 2005. Spence was nominated by Harford County Council President Billy Boniface.
In his nomination President Boniface stated, “Kim Spence did an exemplary job in preparing the 2011 Fiscal Year Annual Budget and Appropriation Ordinance, the Capital Budget and the Capital Program.” The Council President added, “Not only did Ms. Spence and her staff work diligently to comply with the Charter requirements as to timing and content of the budget, this year, at the request of the Council, a new format for the Capital Program was instituted. Ms. Spence demonstrated outstanding leadership in this major undertaking during a particularly difficult budget year with a reduced staff due to cutbacks and injuries.”

It is only due to the hard work and dedication of my staff that as Chief of Budget and Management Research I am able to meet the expectations and needs of County Executive Craig and the Harford County Council.”
