Jefferson named New Kent County Employee of the Month


Margaret Jefferson, Payroll Administrator for the New Kent County Financial Services Department, was named New Kent County Employee of the Month for the month of July. Jefferson has been employed with the County for six years.

One of her fellow co-workers said, “Ask anyone that works for New Kent County and they will tell you that Margaret Jefferson is a joy to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable and professional, but also approaches her job in a friendly and easy to understand manner. During the past year, the Finance Department has been down one employee. During this period of time, Margaret has arrived early daily to ensure that all tasks are performed in a timely manner. As a co-worker, I appreciate Margaret’s professionalism and knowledge of various subjects. She provides excellent customer service and is a shining example for us all. Finally, Margaret is a team player who truly has the overall benefit of our Citizens in mind.”

Another coworker said, “No matter what question you need answered Margaret will stop what she is doing and get you the answer that is needed. She understands the urgency of certain purchase orders and that they need to be completed right away. She will come early or stay late to make sure that she gets her own work done but also can help the people in her department or the different departments out. It makes my job easier because I know I can call her and she will get me the answer if I have a finance-related question.”

Jefferson received her award on July 3 surrounded by her co-workers and the County’s Wellness Committee.
