(MIAMI, FL) – Miami-Dade County Commissioner Barbara J. Jordan celebrated the tenure of two County employees who have served the longest in their jobs. Barbara McMillan, a secretary in the Water and Sewer Department, has been a County employee for 46 years. She received her honors along with Emily Rose, who in August will have served 47 years with the Clerk’s Office as a Court Record Specialist. Both employees received a Certificate of Appreciation and a pen set. As it stands, neither Barbara nor Emily has plans to retire.

“Barbara McMillan and Emily Rose are both shining examples of the excellence that County employees exemplify every day,” Commissioner Jordan said. “These are special people, especially when you consider that most employees retire when they reach 30 years. However, these two young ladies have passed that 30-year mark by more than 15 years.”

Commissioner Jordan was joined by Mayor Carlos Gimenez, Chairman Jean Monestime, County Clerk Harvey Ruvin and the Board of County Commissioners.
