Cindy Reid, who previously worked in the Charlotte City Attorney’s Office, will replace long-serving Rick Kline as Davidson’s town attorney, the town announced Wednesday.

Kline is retiring after about 40 years in the post. Reid begins July 1.

She received a bachelor of arts in history and English from Queens University of Charlotte and her law degree from Wake Forest University School of Law in Winston-Salem.

Reid spent several years in private practice before joining the Charlotte City Attorney’s Office, where she represented the engineering and finance departments.

In 2007, she began working as Davidson’s affordable housing coordinator and helped the town begin its “inclusionary zoning” program. For the past five years, she has been Davidson staff attorney providing assistance in the areas of employment, contracts and general government law.

Reid will spend 15 hours a week on the affordable housing program and 35 hours a week on staff and town attorney work.

She has lived in Davidson with her husband and three children for 20 years.
