Brampton CAO shown the door

Brampton’s chief administrative officer John Corbett  is no longer employed with the city, the biggest recent casualty of former mayor Susan Fennell’s troubled administration.

Corbett has been at the centre of controversy since he took the job in late 2012. He was one of five senior staff, along with former mayor Fennell, named in documents included in a $28.5-million lawsuit launched against the city by a developer who claims he was unfairly disqualified from bidding on a $500-million downtown development project.

The writing was on the wall for Corbett after Jeffrey blasted him during a morning budget sub-committee meeting for “dumping” budget documents on councillors just minutes before the meeting, preventing them from making informed decisions on the 2015 budget process, and for presenting a budget report that argued against a specific council request to freeze the wages of himself and all non-union staff.

Corbett had worked for the city for about 30 years, rising to the position of commissioner of planning before he got the top job.
