Bronson retires as county finance director

26 years of service to Suwannee County

Live Oak —

Friends, family and co-workers gathered recently at the Suwannee County Judicial Annex Building to celebrate the retirement of Leeta Bronson who has served the county for 26 years. 

Bronson began her tenure with the county in November of 1987 as the payroll clerk for the clerk’s office and all county employees under Johnny Wooley who served as clerk at that time. 

In September of 1994, Bronson was promoted to finance supervisor. Later in January of 2001, Bronson was once again promoted to finance director. 

“I have worked for four clerks during my 26 years of employment: John G. Wooley, Randy Henderson, Kenneth Dasher and current  Clerk Barry Baker,” Bronson said. “I am very thankful  each clerk gave me the opportunity to continue serving the citizens of Suwannee County.” 

The job hasn’t always been easy, Bronson said she has endured many changes mandated by state government. However, Bronson said her staff has always adapted and moved forward. 

“The clerk's office has been through many changes over the years,” she said. 

Bronson said she has enjoyed her job with the county throughout the years.

“I was very blessed to work with a great staff. I am very proud of each one of them and their work performance through the years,” she said. “I know I will miss seeing them on a daily basis.”

Following retirement, Bronson said she has simple plans.

“I am looking forward to spending time with my family, traveling, and fishing,” said Bronson.
