For nearly four decades, 83 year old Norma Hatfield has served as Fremont County's Clerk and Recorder.
Now Norma is retired, today was her last official day. Her replacement Katie Barr was elected in November and sworn in this morning, with Norma by her side. Katie knows she has big shoes to fill but is excited to take office.
Norma however, has one thing she would really like to stay the same, "I've always had my door open, they can come in and talk to me about anything they wanted to," she says.
Katie promises it will stay that way, "I will absolutely keep her open door policy, so I look forward to seeing the people in the community."
In retirement Norma says she plans to travel and of course stop by the office every now and then, just to say hi and check in. Katie says she doesn't know if she'll hold the office as long as Norma, and adds, that all depends on the voters.
