New Kenora clerk has ties locally

The City of Kenora has a new clerk and manager of Legislative Services and Communications with ties locally.
Heather Kasprick, the daughter of Dwayne and Charlaine Pihulak, officially was appointed by Kenora council on Tuesday.

She will oversee the Legislative Services and Communications department, which includes clerks, Provincial Offences, and city licensing.
Kasprick, who started working for the City of Kenora in 1995, has worked with every department in the city through her previous role as city deputy clerk and communications lead.
“I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my career with the city and joining the great senior management team to continue to move the city forward,” she said, adding she is proud of her accomplishment and proud to come from Fort Frances.
Kasprick’s appointment is part of a succession plan for the retirement of long-term city clerk Joanne McMillin, whose last day at work was May 15 after 37 years of service.
“Since she started working for the city in 1995, Heather consistently has impressed me with her ability to readily step into any role and excel at anything she does,” Kenora CAO Karen Brown said in a press release.
“She brings with her a wealth of knowledge and experience into her new position, and I believe will be a valuable addition to our senior management team here at the city,” she added.
Mayor David Canfield echoed those sentiments.
“Heather is a strong, competent employee who I have had the pleasure to work with since amalgamation,” he noted.
“I look forward to this continued working relationship in her new position.
“With her many years of experience, education, and her vast knowledge of city departments, she will be a strong asset to the city in this essential position,” Mayor Canfield added.
