Intermediate Accounts Clerk “goes beyond” for the finance department
Cape May Court House, NJ – Almost a year ago, Chad Murnaghan decided to trade in his helmet and construction sitescape for a calculator and an office environment – and his new colleagues are so happy he has it do.
The former laborer is now an accounts clerk for Middle Township’s finance department, helping manage township expenses. He takes pride in his work and is a valuable part of the team, earning him recognition as November’s employee of the month.
“I pay the bills,” Murnaghan said. “I have a degree in accounting and I’m a person who likes numbers, so this job suits me perfectly. And it’s an honor to work for the city where I was born and raised.
Murnaghan is indeed a stickler for numbers: his scrutiny of Middle’s utility accounts reduced the township’s liability by about $50,000.
“I have a lot of helpful colleagues behind me who make success possible,” Murnaghan said. “A lot of people in this town work really hard. It’s a brand new career for me and everyone in the department has been tolerant and kind.
Betzy McClintock, another accountant, nominated McClintock for the employee of the month honor.
“Working with Chad is an absolute pleasure,” said McClintock. “He helped keep the ship afloat in the finance office. He is humble about his accomplishments and says he is just doing his job, but the time and energy he puts in goes beyond that.
Mayor Tim Donohue, who oversees the township’s finance department, said Murnaghan is a model employee.
“Chad has been an exemplary member of our township’s finance team,” he said. “His strong work ethic, willingness to learn new skills and overall disposition made him a pleasure to work with everyone in the office. He is well deserving of this honor and I am happy to have him on our team. !
Murnaghan will be recognized at the November 21 city committee meeting.
