Garret dubs council vote to replace him illegal
-recognises Sooba as acting Town Clerk
Junior Garret, who a majority of city councillors voted to replace as chair of their Finance Committee, is maintaining that he still legally occupies the post and he recognises the legitimacy of Carol Sooba’s claim to the office of Town Clerk.
At a special meeting last week, a motion of no confidence was passed against Garret after councillors claimed he made decisions unilaterally and signed off on the spending of the city’s money without the council’s permission. The motion resolved to remove Garret as the Finance Committee Chairman.
