“I’m so proud to be appointed to my fifth term as Town Clerk,” she said.

Strauss said her records show that there have been 14 Town Clerks since the Town of Westport was incorporated in 1835, and the average length in office is 12 years. 

By the end of Stauss’s fifth term, she will rank as having the third longest tenure in that position, according to town records. John W. Taylor held the position for 34 years (1839-1873) and Strauss’s immediate predecessor, Joan M. Hyde, was Town Clerk for 35 years (1963-1998.)
