CARRBORO, N.C. -- In a resolution presented on Oct. 24, 2023, the Carrboro Town Council recognizes the exceptional commitment and contribution Wesley Barker has made to the Town of Carrboro as Town Clerk.
Beginning his services as Town Clerk just as the Town was emerging from the COVID-19 public health emergency, Wesley made it a priority to provide excellent customer service to Carrboro’s residents and visitors. He worked to systematize many processes in the Town Clerk’s Office to help bring greater consistency and efficiency to Town operations.
Wesley has made the fulfillment of public records requests a priority and has developed a detailed tracking database of requests received by the town. He has established a protocol of routing those requests so they can be dealt with promptly.
He has created a process for managing and updating the rosters of the Town’s 20 advisory boards and commissions, working closely with staff liaisons and volunteer applications to navigate the appointment process.
Wesley has been an integral part of the Town’s management team, leading the collating and publishing of the Council’s weekly agenda materials and creating a set of detailed how-to guides for staff to follow in developing agenda items.
He was instrumental in helping the town achieve a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Municipal Equality Index for the first time in 2022.
Wesley has taken on countless other responsibilities while serving as Town Clerk. He has been friendly, thorough, detail-oriented, organized and a true ambassador for Carrboro.
The Council wishes him and his family happiness upon their return to the mountains and knows he will find success and fulfillment as he pursues the next stage of his career.
