City of Kamloops CAO David Trawin is on leave and the city’s community protective services director, Byron McCorkell, is acting in his place until further notice.
At a press conference on Wednesday, the mayor was asked about the status of the city’s top staffer following a medical emergency last week that halted a public city council meeting at city hall, resulting in Trawin taken to hospital.
Mayor Ken Christian said the city does not comment on health issues related to its staff.
“I will say this, I have spoken to Mr. Trawin. He is very grateful for the interest that the media and community have expressed, good wishes for him, and he is currently on leave,” Christian said. “Mr. McCorkell is currently in charge. He is the deputy CAO and right now he’s the acting CAO. And, as you saw yesterday in council, all of the directors have certainly stepped up and Kamloops is running on all cylinders. We look forward to Mr. Trawin’s return, when he’s available.”
