ALEXANDRIA, March 2, 2018 – The Township of North Glengarry has a new Chief Administrative Officer/Clerk.  Ms. Sarah Huskinson was the successful candidate in the competition for this position.

Huskinson has more than 15 years of financial administration experience in the public and municipal sector of Eastern Ontario. Last December, Huskinson joined the township as the Deputy-Treasurer. On January 17, she was promoted to the title of Director of Finance/Treasurer.

Huskinson will assume her new role on April 16th, taking over from Interim CAO/Clerk, Steven Potter.

“On behalf of council, I would like to congratulate Sarah Huskinson and to thank all of the candidates who applied for this position,” said North Glengarry Mayor Chris McDonell.

“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.” The Mayor added that “Council would also like to thank Mr. Steven Potter for his services as Interim CAO/Clerk, during a productive transition period.”

In accepting the position, Huskinson said, “I am extremely excited for the opportunity to serve as the Chief Administrative Officer for the Township of North Glengarry.  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.”
