Mr. McCormick submitted his resignation to the Clerk effective January 22, 2019 citing personal reasons for leaving the position.
“We look forward, as a Council, to working with Ms. Strackerjan in her new capacity. Ms. Strackerjan ran a vigorous campaign and came a close fifth in the election for Municipal Councillor”, stated Mayor Nancy Peckford.
Deputy Mayor Jim McManaman added, “We appreciate the considerable efforts that Mr. McCormick made to fulfill his responsibilities and wish him all the best in future endeavours”.
