Susan Richter, Senior Administrative Assistant for Housing and Human Services, has been named the 2011 City of Falls Church Employee of the Year.
The Employee Review Board selected Richter for her leading role managing the Community Services Fund, administering the Fare Wheels program, supporting the Community Development Block Grant program, and monitoring inter-jurisdictional contracts. “Sue Richter embodies the heart of Housing and Human Services: providing service to our City’s most vulnerable residents, such as homeless children and adults, low-income seniors, victims of domestic abuse, the deaf, and those needing free legal services,” said Nancy Vincent, Director of her department. A public reception in Richter’s honor is scheduled for Monday, April 23, at 6:45 p.m. at Cherry Hill Farmhouse (312 Park Ave.).
The award will be presented to Richter that evening at the City Council meeting in City Hall (300 Park Ave.). A total of seven City employees were nominated for this award for their outstanding contributions during 2011. The citizen-based Employee Review Board selects an Employee of the Year each year from nominations submitted by City employees and citizens.
The recipient is selected for their involvement in an accomplishment of outstanding worth in advancing and improving public service in the City of Falls Church that produces outcomes, such as higher morale or acts beyond the call of duty, and goes above and beyond the nominee’s normal duties.
