Cumberland City Clerks – Wolford, Clark and Woodring

The City of Cumberland was officially chartered by an Act of the Maryland State Legislature on January 20, 1787.

Audrey C. Wolford is considered to be the first woman appointed as City Clerk for the City of Cumberland. Wolford served in this capacity from 1978 until her retirement in 2000. Wolford is depicted above from a May 1, 2000 Cumberland Times-News photo displaying one of the voting machines to be used in an upcoming election.

Wolford was succeeded by Sharon Clark, who held that position from 2000 until her retirement in 2008. Clark is depicted here in a photo from the April 30, 2008 Cumberland Times-News. Upon her retirement Clark was presented a framed photograph of Cumberland’s City Hall in recognition of her 40 years of public service.

Margie A. Woodring, the city’s Economic Development Coordinator at the time, was then appointed City Clerk to succeed Sharon Clark. Woodring holds that position as of this writing.
