Mov­ing on, again

The Glengarry News - - News - -- Scott Carmichael

For­mer South Glen­garry CAO Derik Brandt is on the move again. Mr. Brandt, 48, who served in that role from Fe­bru­ary 2006 un­til his dis­missal in early 2014, an­nounced his res­ig­na­tion as the Town of Grimsby’s chief ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer/town man­ager on Fe­bru­ary 5.

The Sault Ste. Marie area na­tive had been with the mu­nic­i­pal­ity for the past three years. In a state­ment re­leased fol­low­ing his re­cent de­par­ture from the mu­nic­i­pal ta­ble in Grimsby, Mr. Brandt ex­plained that the large turnover in coun­cil fol­low­ing last fall’s mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion was his pri­mary rea­son for leav­ing. “There was a sig­nif­i­cant amount of change af­ter the elec­tion and the new coun­cil wants to move for­ward with a clean break and I can re­spect that,” he said.
