Coulombe earns Clerk of Maine status
FORT KENT, Maine — The Maine Town and City Clerk’s Association recently recognized Fort Kent town clerk Angela Coulombe who qualified to achieve certified Clerk of Maine status.
Coulombe, 41, has worked for the town of Fort Kent since 2008.
“I enjoy dealing with the public. I like the people, not only the city of Fort Kent but fellow clerks. People call me every now and then bounce an idea off me. I like getting to know other fellow clerks of the state and dealing with the people of the community,” she said
Coulombe’s responsibilities as town clerk include overseeing local elections, taking care of vital records such as birth certificates, death certificates and marriage certificates, overseeing and working the counter at the Fort Kent town office in terms of DMV registrations, taxes and real estate transfers and serving as a notary public. She decided that she may as well become a certified town clerk.
“I had taken a lot of courses over the years and then people were asking me, ‘Why don’t you become certified.’ I looked at everything I had already done, took some more classes, took the test, passed and became certified,” she said.
Coulombe holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Maine at Fort Kent. Originally from St. Francis, she now resides in Fort Kent with her husband of 17 years, Gary, and the couple’s young daughter, Taylor.
