Kalamazoo City Attorney Clyde Robinson announces retirement

KALAMAZOO, MI — Kalamazoo City Attorney Clyde Robinson plans to retire on or after July 1, 2022, he said.

Robinson will continue to serve as city attorney until a successor can be named, he said while announcing his plans to retire during the Monday, March 21, Kalamazoo City Commission meeting.

“Far too often I have put the needs of my work ahead of those of my family,” Robinson said at the meeting.

Several commissioners spoke about Robinson and his contribution to the city. Commissioner Jeanne Hess said she appreciates Robinson’s service and she looks forward to celebrating him.

Vice Mayor Don Cooney said Robinson embodies four words: expertise, fairness, respect and kindness.

Robinson, a Kalamazoo native, was hired as Kalamazoo’s city attorney in 2008.

Before coming to work for the city of Kalamazoo, Robinson spent his entire professional career in the Battle Creek city attorney’s office, starting there in 1980 as an assistant attorney. He was promoted to deputy counsel in 1985, and became the city’s chief counsel in 1999.
