A lifelong resident of Brock has been appointed as the Township’s new clerk.
Becky Jamieson, who previously served as the municipality’s deputy clerk, was formally promoted with the passage of a bylaw at Monday (March 18) night’s council meeting.
“I’m extremely honoured for the opportunity to be clerk and that council believes that I am ready and capable to fulfill the role,” she said in an interview.
“As a lifelong resident of Brock, it is truly a dream to work for the Township. I’m excited for the challenges ahead and to implement some changes in the years to come. I look forward to working closely with members of council, staff and the public in this new role.”
A graduate of Brock High School, Jamieson earned an honours Bachelor of Arts in sociology from York University and also holds a diploma in recreation and leisure from Canadore College.
“I have also worked very hard over the past six years taking courses through AMCTO (the Association of Municipal Managers, Clerks and Treasurers of Ontario) to better educate myself for the clerks’ role,” she said.
Jamieson was hired by the municipality in August of 2012 and spent three years as a clerks’ assistant before moving up to deputy clerk.
She credits current CAO Thom Gettinby – who is retiring early next month – for his support throughout her tenure at the Township.
“I am grateful for the support the current CAO and municipal clerk has provided and know the Durham-area clerks will be a great resource and support to be in my new role,” she said.
