Jefferson City, Mo. - Attorney General Chris Koster today announced that MaryAnn Wippermann, a legal secretary in his Division of Governmental Affairs, is retiring after serving in the office for more than 43 years.
Koster said Wippermann started in the Attorney General's Office in April 1969 under Attorney General Norman Anderson. She has since served under five additional Missouri Attorneys General - John Danforth, John Ashcroft, Bill Webster, Jay Nixon, and Chris Koster. In addition, she worked with Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Senator Kit Bond when they were assistant attorneys general.
"MaryAnn is a living library of the Attorney General's Office," Koster said. "It's amazing to think of all the technological changes she has seen in the workplace. She is an outstanding public servant, and we'll all miss her very much."
Koster said Wippermann will be honored at a reception on Friday, December 17, in the 6th floor conference room of the Broadway Building.
