Terri Caron
Caron era ends in New Tecumseth
Pictured above (screen image grab from Rogers TV broadcast last night), New Tecumseth CAO reacts to learning the parting gift presented to her by mayor Mike MacEachern, is an Inuit heron necklace. The heron holds sentimental value to Ms. Caron dating back to her 21 years working for the late Vaughan mayor, Lorna Jackson.

Holly appointed new CAO as Caron exits after dozen years

Posted August 26, 2014

Brendan Holly sheds the "Deputy" label from his job title after New Tecumseth councillors appointed him the new CAO last night to replace Terri Caron, who retires from the post after serving the past 12 years.

Like Ms. Caron, who spent 21 years in senior administration positions with the City of Vaughan, Mr. Holly came over from Vaughan a few months after Ms. Caron's appointment as CAO. He was senior manager of Development, Transportation and Engineering when he joined New Tecumseth about 12 years ago as Director of Development Services. Mr. Holly added Deputy CAO to his job duties in 2004, on top of his role as Director of Technical Services.

His elevation to CAO was approved last night in camera, and ratified during the public portion of the council meeting - the last one scheduled before the Oct. 27th municipal elections. The decision comes two weeks before council loses its authority to make such an appointment.
