Kinston's loss is Greenville's gain as the new city clerk doesn't have very far to move.
Carol Barwick will begin June 1st as Greenville city clerk. Since 2001 Barwick has been city clerk in Kinston. Before that she worked for nearly 22 years in Kinston's public works department.
"We're extremely excited to be getting a person with this kind of experience, having worked as a clerk and also in another department within the City of Kinston" said Mayor Pat Dunn.
Barwick replaces Wanda Elks who recently retired.
