Woodstock names Clem town manager

The Shenandoah Valley-Herald

WOODSTOCK — Woodstock Town Council has promoted Angela Clem to the town’s second-highest seat.

Council chose Clem during a special meeting on Aug. 17. She has served as the town’s interim town manager since her predecessor, Reid Wodicka, left to become Bedford County’s assistant county administrator on Aug. 1.

Wodicka had served as town manager since 2013, before which he was the president of the Woodstock Fire Department.

Clem started working in the town’s Public Works department in 2005. She also worked in the Planning and Community Development department before becoming assistant town manager in 2014.

She was born in Fairfax County and grew up near Edinburg. She earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Kentucky and a master’s of science in organizational leadership from Shenandoah University in Winchester.

Clem said her biggest goal as town manager is to lead the process of creating a strategic plan.

“The goals were set by Town Council three years ago,” she said. “It’s time to update the objectives.”

Woodstock’s last strategic plan was published in 2013. It contained a five-year plan for strengthening the town’s economy and government.

The next one is scheduled for 2018. Clem said council will likely hold a work session “in the coming months” to discuss it.

Clem’s other goals include overseeing Woodstock’s current projects, including upgrades to the water treatment plant and construction of a downtown parking lot and a dog park this year.

“I’m really excited to continue serving Woodstock,” she said.
