MORRISBURG – South Dundas is losing its economic development officer.

Nicole Sullivan announced her resignation this afternoon (Thursday) in an email obtained by Cornwall Newswatch.

Sullivan says she is resigning to “take a position” closer to home, reportedly with the City of Ottawa.

She is a native of Bells Corners.

A spokesman with the City of Ottawa would not confirm any hiring, saying it doesn’t comment on personnel matters.

Sullivan’s last day in South Dundas will be Friday May 1.

In the email, Sullivan says she was amazed by the natural beauty and character of South Dundas when she first started. She also noted the “entrepreneurial spirit and industriousness” of the business and residents that “makes South Dundas remarkable.”

She has held the position since November 2011.

It’s not known what the municipality plans to do to fill the position.

A call to South Dundas CAO Stephen McDonald was not returned.
