June: Carlotta Blair is Employee of the Month
Comptroller's Office Employee of the Month for June 2013.
We have another longtime City worker being recognized. Carlotta Blair has been named the June 2013 Employee of the Month. Carlotta works as an Administrative Assistant I to Deputy Comptroller, John Zakibe. She's located in City Hall, Room 311.
Carlotta has worked for the City for more than 17 years—and in her current position since October 2007. In this role she works directly with the Deputy Comptroller, maintaining his calendar updates and typing various correspondence for his signature. Other duties include paying bills that our department has by preparing the vouchers for the Accounts Payable department, typing wire transfers for various accounts and typing the list of account transfers for City departments for the Board of E & A. Carlotta also prepares end of the year fund transaction reports and performs other miscellaneous secretarial duties.
Carlotta says the best part of her job is working for one of the most important departments in the City!
When she's not hard at work, she says "my passion is writing poetry and my children are my inspiration. They inspire to go beyond my own goals. I never would have thought I would be pursuing my MBA. But, knowing how proud they are and hearing them brag about me to their friends keeps me motivated when I feel like giving up. I have to go further so show them that they can achieve their dreams with hard work and determination no matter how hard life may get."
Excellent advice. Keep up the great work!
