Nell currently serves as Summit County’s Deputy and Chief Clerk and Recorder and has been in that position since 2017. At Summit County, Nell played a significant role in making government more accessible and transparent by being part of the team that implemented 24/7 remote access to public documents, and she brings a depth of experience around elections, liquor and tobacco licensing, and record filing and retention, which will serve Frisco residents and businesses at a high level of service and professionalism.
“We feel very fortunate to have found such a capable and knowledgeable professional to take on this role. The position of Town Clerk is essential to the success of a municipality, and I am confident that Stacey will bring many ideas and innovations, which will serve Frisco’s residents and businesses,” stated Frisco Town Manager Tom Fisher.

Nell also has experience at Town of Frisco, where she worked at the Frisco/Copper Visitor Information Center from 2011 to 2014.
Nell lives in the Frisco area with her husband and two dogs. She plays hockey and boats on Colorado’s rivers in her free time. Nell also serves on the Summit Youth Hockey Board of Directors, where she also coaches girls aged four to eight.
“This is a dream job for me because it marries my love for Frisco with my passion for accessible, friendly, and efficient government. I have lived in Frisco for many years, and I am so thrilled to be serving this community once again,” stated Stacey Nell.
The Town of Frisco offers its gratitude to former Town Clerk Deborah Wohlmuth who served Frisco and its residents and businesses for almost 19 years. Wohlmuth ushered the Town through many changes and her passion for elections and accessibility were a constant throughout her time with the Town.
Wohlmuth facilitated over 415 Town Council meetings during her tenure and took Town Council from a very traditional meeting format to a more accessible hybrid format where residents can participate and watch remotely through Zoom and YouTube. Deborah was also vital in supporting elections with her involvement in 10 local Frisco election cycles, as well as state and national elections over the past 19 years. Deborah also played a key role in supporting Frisco’s vibrant business community by administering over 1,700 business licenses and over 50 liquor licenses.
