MONTICELLO – Sullivan County Clerk Daniel Briggs is retiring at the end of the year, closing out a 36-year career in government.

He announced on Tuesday that he won’t be seeking re-election and plans to spend more time with his family and traveling.

Among his crowning achievements as county clerk is helping veterans.

“In my term as county clerk I would have to point with some pride the F.A.V.O.R. program that we helped enact, and that is acknowledging our very valuable veterans for their service and providing them discount cards to the various merchants in the community,” he said. “Anything we can do for our veterans is richly deserved.”

Briggs’ career also includes 18 years as county treasurer, five years as county manager and one year as assistant commissioner of the state Office of Housing and Community Renewal. He also served as a Thompson town councilman and acting Monticello village justice.
