Robilio Names Top Staff in Clerk's Office
By Bill Dries
Memphis City Court Clerk Kay Robilio has appointed her front office as she prepares to take the oath of office Friday, Jan. 1, as the first new city court clerk in 20 years.
Robilio announced Monday that she has appointed attorney Frances M. Riley as chief administrative officer and senior chief deputy clerk.
Riley is a former president of the local chapter of the Association for Women Attorneys and clerked for judges in the Western District of Tennessee U.S. Bankruptcy Court before entering her law practice.
Robilio has also appointed former Shelby County Criminal Court Clerk Kevin Key as chief deputy officer.
Robilio was elected clerk in the 2015 city elections from a crowded field after incumbent clerk Thomas Long announced he would not seek re-election. Long has been clerk for 20 years.
