New Chesapeake City Town Hall Employee Hired

A message from Tonya Lockwood:

tonyalockwoodHello! My name is Tonya Lockwood and starting Tuesday, October 11th I will be replacing Mary Elizabeth Cooper as the Receptionist/Water & Sewer Billing Clerk at the Town Hall of Chesapeake City. I am a lifelong resident of Chesapeake City and I am excited to begin my new journey right here in my hometown. I've been married to my husband, Chuck, for 18 years, and he has coached numerous youth sports teams for our community. We both graduated from Bohemia Manor High School and began to create our life together in Chesapeake City. We have 2 children - an 18 year old son, Zack, and a 17 year old daughter, Zoë. Zack is a freshman at Towson University studying Music Education and plans to teach in Cecil County after graduation. Zoë is a senior at Bohemia Manor and plans to play softball and study Business with a focus in Accounting at Goldey Beacom College next year. My family takes great pride in calling Chesapeake City our home. We love attending all of the High School sporting events during the school year, and eating dinner at the Chesapeake City Little League Field during the ball season. The closeness of this community is something you don't get everywhere. Our hometown is by far the best! I can't wait to meet everyone! See you at Town Hall!
