Cathy Clark is shown outside of the Clarksdale City Hall on Sunflower Avenue on a recent morning. Clark went to work for the city on Dec. 1, 1988, as an accounts payable clerk and became the city’s chief deputy clerk in March 1995.  She became the Clarksdale city clerk in July 2001, a position she’s held for more than 17 years now.
