Sarnia’s clerk Dianne Gould-Brown no longer works for the city, the Journal has learned.

Sarnia’s Director of Corporate Services wouldn’t say if Gould-Brown’s employment was terminated or if she resigned.

“As it was a personnel matter I’m not at liberty to disclose any further details,” said David Logan, confirming her last day was July 14.

City solicitor Sutheat Tim has taken over clerk duties while city staffer Amy Burkhard has been promoted to deputy clerk position, Logan said.

“We’re not posting for (clerk) position given the confidence we have in both Sutheat and Amy.”

Gould-Brown was with the city for six years, during which she filed a complaint with the city’s integrity commissioner in 2017 over how she was treated by the mayor at a council meeting.

The integrity commissioner’s report at the time accused Sarnia Mayor Mike Bradley of breaching the city’s Code of Conduct by disrespecting and intimidating Gould-Brown at the Feb. 27 meeting.
