Less than three months af­ter ac­cept­ing a job as North Glen­garry’s Deputy Trea­surer, Sarah Huskin­son has been el­e­vated to the town­ship’s top job of Chief Ad­min­is­tra­tive Of­fi­cer/Clerk.

“Coun­cil knows that Sarah will bring to the CAO/Clerk po­si­tion the same dili­gence and ex­cel­lence in lead­er­ship that she has dis­played in her po­si­tion in fi­nance,” said Mayor Chris McDonell shortly af­ter the an­nounce­ment. Later, he said that coun­cil had in­ter­viewed about 20 can­di­dates be­fore de­cid­ing that Ms. Huskin­son was the best choice.

Ms. Huskin­son has more than 15 years of fi­nan­cial ad­min­is­tra­tion ex­pe­ri­ence in the pub­lic and mu­nic­i­pal sec­tor of East­ern On­tario. She earned a Busi­ness Ad­min­is­tra­tion Ac­count­ing diploma from St. Lawrence Col­lege and an Hon­ours Bach­e­lor of Com­merce de­gree from Lau­ren­tian Univer­sity and holds a CPA and CGA des­ig­na­tion.

Ms. Huskin­son came to North Glen­garry in De­cem­ber of 2017 and on Jan. 17, she was pro­moted to Direc­tor of Fi­nance/Trea­surer.

“I am ex­tremely ex­cited for the op­por­tu­nity to serve as the Chief Ad­min­is­tra­tive Of­fi­cer for the Town­ship of North Glen­garry,” Ms. Huskin­son said. “I look forward to work­ing in col­lab­o­ra­tion with coun­cil, staff, and our com­mu­nity part­ners, to meet the needs of our res­i­dents and to move the Town­ship forward in a pos­i­tive di­rec­tion.”

Ms. Huskin­son will be­gin her new du­ties on April 16, tak­ing over from in­terim CAO/Clerk Steven Pot­ter. In the mean­time, the town­ship has started search­ing for a new Direc­tor of Fi­nance/Trea­surer.
