Haverhill’s newest license commissioner won’t need to come up to speed on procedures and rules when she hears matters for the first time this week.

Up until a year ago Laura Angus served as the city’s assistant city clerk and License Commission clerk and was well known to all of the city’s liquor and automobile sales licensees. She joined the Haverhill City Clerk’s office and immediately began serving the License Commission in April 2014 when she was appointed by Mayor James J. Fiorentini. Last year, Angus changed jobs and became benefit counselor to the Haverhill Retirement Board.

Angus succeeds longtime Commissioner Gerald A. Sewell, who passed away unexpectedly in December. She joins License Commission Chairman Joseph C. Edwards and Commissioner Amy Carter. In 2018, Carter became the first-ever female commissioner and Angus now becomes the second.

The mayor notified the City Council of Angus’ appointment last Tuesday.

She previously operated Laura Angus Family Day Care from 2004-2014 and served as managing attorney for Attorney’s Title Services of Wellesley from 2001-2004 and Guaranty Abstract Company of Eastern Massachusetts of Cambridge and Wellesley from 1987-2001.

Angus received her juris doctor degree from New England School of Law in 1987 and bachelor’s from University of New Hampshire in 1983.

The License Commission is scheduled to meet Thursday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m.
