Caron announces retirement after dozen years as CAO
The Terri Caron era in New Tecumseth will end officially Aug. 25th, when the Town’s Chief Administrative Officer/ In House Counsel, “will step down following the last scheduled Council Meeting of this term (election year meetings in September and October are at the call of the chair).
Ms. Caron took over the CAO job in New Tecumseth from Sterling Zeran in June 2002. She was hired during Larry Keogh’s term of office, leaving the City of Vaughan where she was the City Solicitor and Deputy City Manager, and VP Corporate at Hydro Vaughan.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the truly dedicated and committed Mayors and Members of the four Councils elected during my 12 years of service to the Town of New Tecumseth,” she is quoted in the prepared statement released this morning.
“I believe that they have all had the best interests of New Tecumseth at heart. I have always been treated with respect and have truly appreciated the confidence and trust they have placed in me. Working with such devoted community leaders has allowed me to do my job with enthusiasm and energy.”
Her retirement caps a 34-year career in the municipal sector, and marks the fourth senior administration departure announced in the first three months of this year.
“I must also express my deepest thanks to all of my outstanding colleagues who have continuously provided me with their support, wisdom and hard work over the many years we have served the community together. It has been a privilege to work with such an exceptional team of talented and committed professionals.”
