CFN – The City of Cornwall has asked for a delay of the trial regarding the removal of editor Jamie Gilcig from Council when he didn’t like Mr. Gilcig’s t shirt.
The delay, because of the former Mayor’s health issues, should be a few months taking the case past the two year mark to resolve. Hopefully he will make a full recovery and we send him our best health wishes.
Media reports claim that he had developed Colon cancer.
Mayor Kilger has been recovering from Stomach cancer surgery previously. He lost the election to former Councilor Leslie O’Shaughnessy who had resigned over issues stemming from the mayor and council via in camera sessions and as he termed, “lies” stemming from Mayor Kilger and management.
Mr. Kilger nor any of the council have ever apologized to date for what occurred that night, to the citizens of Cornwall or CFN. Oddly enough they debated the 100 Letter Campaign which was cancelled by CFN after the City refused to participate or support it . The Campaign was to promote the city and small business by having the public send in letters and vote over three months about why Cornwall is a great place.
Mayor Kilger cited that linking the contest to the city’s facebook page would be a “security issue”.
