Misty Cryer was appointed as City Secretary during the November 10, 2020, City Council meeting and began her duties with the City of Robinson on November 30, 2020. Cryer comes with over 14 years’ experience in municipal government.
Cryer was born and raised in Killeen, TX, and graduated from Ellison High School. In 2002, she went to work for the City of Killeen as Office Assistant at the Bob Gilmore Senior Center. The City of Killeen is where she spent most of her time in municipal government, eventually promoting to the Operations Supervisor for the Arts & Activities Center, where she spent her last four years with the City of Killeen. In 2017, Cryer and her family moved to Odessa, TX, due to her husband being transferred there for work. Shortly after moving to Odessa, Cryer took a position with the City of Midland as the Administrative Assistant to the City Secretary. After about a year with Midland, Cryer was promoted to Deputy City Secretary and served in that capacity for about a year when they learned a promotion within Oncor was sending her husband back to the Central Texas area.
The relocation back to the area landed Cryer and her family in Waco, TX, where they resided until they settled on a more permanent home in Lorena, TX. Once settled in, Cryer accepted a position with the Brazos River Authority in 2020 as their Administrative Assistant and the Accounts Receivable and Billing Coordinator. During her employment with Brazos River Authority, Cryer just felt like something was missing. “I longed to return to local government,” emphasized Cryer. I hadn’t been with Brazos River Authority very long when I noticed the City Secretary opening with the City, so I gave it a shot,” stated Cryer. She went on to say, “It feels really good to back in local government, serving the residents of the community.”
