As this is Women's History Month, it is with great honor that this month's LAGERS' Retiree Spotlight shines on the second and longest serving female commissioner in Ste. Genevieve County's history, Linda Hermann. Linda began her career in St. Genevieve County in 1978 in the county treasurer's office. She eventually made the move to the county clerk's office and even did a two year stint in the sheriff's office as a dispatcher. From there Linda served her community as the District 1 Commissioner of Ste. Genevieve County for 10 years. Today, Ste. Genevieve County maintains a strong female presence in its elected offices. Perhaps Linda helped a little in paving the way for these women.
