Ashley Murillo, Court Clerk-Municipal Court
Awarded Employee of the Month in recognition and appreciation for consistently excellent customer service in the Municipal Court and willingness to assist in other City departments. 
As Court Clerk, Ashley Murillo provides excellent customer service to all customers and is especially helpful in her Spanish/English bi-lingual communications. She is often called upon to translate for Court customers and also to translate for other departments as needed, such as for 911 emergency calls. Most recently, she was able to assist the Police Department in communicating with an individual who could not speak English regarding property of a deceased individual. She is commended for her assistance and helpful attitude and continues to prove to be a valuable asset to the City of Gainesville.

Chandra Mason, Human Resources Coordinator- Human Resources Department
Chandra has accomplished remarkable achievements in her short time at the City. Within one year of working at the City as Human Resources Coordinator, in additional to her job training and acclimation to the City and her work responsibilities, she has successfully completed the City of Gainesville University employee program, the City of Gainesville Leadership Academy employee program, the Leadership Gainesville program for members of the community through the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, the Gainesville Police Department's Citizen's Police Academy and has also become an active member and the service chair person for the Cooke County Young Professionals group. 
In addition to these activities and accomplishments, she has established cooperative working relationships with employees and departments and is always willing to help and participate in City events and functions. During our benefits open enrollment period this last year, Chandra anticipated the reservation and hesitation from employees required to use online benefit enrollment, so she took the initiative and time to meet with all employees who needed assistance with online open enrollment requirements and provided them with hands-on explanation and training. Chandra makes sure to always meet deadlines and works well with departments for all of their human resources needs and in particular for their job posting and payroll processing questions and requests. Recently, when the HR Director fell ill during a supervisory training class, though not prepared to present the training materials and having little experience in training of this magnitude, Chandra stepped up and presented the training material and information to finish the class for the HR Director. Her willingness to step in for the HR Director as trainer saved the City from having to reschedule the class and disrupt the schedules of 38 supervisory personnel. Chandra's work ethic, dependability, positive attitude and willingness to do whatever is needed to help departments and present, past and potential employees is a true demonstration of the City's customer-focused workplace initiative and she has become a great asset to the Human Resources Department, the City of Gainesville and the Gainesville community.
