Bea Renton, the Town of Lunenburg’s CAO/Clerk, retires as of November 9, 2021. She has most ably served the citizens of Lunenburg for many years, and along the way participated in the revitalization of the waterfront, the UNESCO designation, and most recently Project Lunenburg implementation. She has served on numerous Provincial and Municipal committees to assist in drafting and updating significant legislation including the Municipal Government Act, Municipal Elections Act, model Municipal Bylaws and Policies, and others. Her many accolades include Dalhousie’s Guy Hanson Gold Medal in Public Administration, and Screen Nova Scotia’s Community Recognition Award for her film and TV industry support. Bea’s dedication to the Town has been extraordinary and we thank her warmly for her years of service and wish her well in retirement.

Stepping in temporarily as Interim CEO/Clerk is Kevin Malloy, who retired as the CAO of the Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL) in 2019. Kevin was CEO of Housing Nova Scotia and Deputy Minister of Service Nova Scotia prior to his time at MODL. Lunenburg continues to be in good hands as Town Council completes the recruitment process for a permanent CAO.
