UPDATE: Congratulations go out to the CBC for being the FIRST of the "mainstream" media outlets to report on this. Certainly more information than I thought would be revealed, and looking forward to even more!
The City Clerk of the City of Regina, Joni Swidnicki, has submitted her resignation. Details are few and far between at the moment, but suffice it to say, this is something that we have all been watching very closely, and have been wondering if her conscience would get the better of her. We believe Ms. Swidnicki is an upstanding individual, and she has done a damn good job of doing what she does. But, when you face constant attacks and pressure from Senior Executives, there is only so much one can take before you call it a day.
The City Clerk's Office confirms that she has in fact resigned - or "retired" (after they already used the term resigned) - and the City Council Agenda for Monday notes that City Council wants to appoint Mr. Jim Nicol as City Clerk. It is unclear if this is a temporary measure, or a long-term one, but we do plan on getting more information on this and sharing it with you as the story develops.
All I have to say is I hope to hell she didn't sign a confidentiality agreement and is willing to talk and stand up in a Court of Law when her former managers are charged for Conspiracy to Commit Fraud, amongst other charges.
This is the only information that has been published on this matter, buried inside the City Council Agenda for Monday:
