Daminato honoured

City of New Westminster CAO Paul Daminato has received  the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal.

He was presented it at Monday night’s council meeting by Mayor Wayne Wright. The award is timely, as Daminato retires from his position as CAO in January 2013 after working with the city for nearly 33 years.

“I feel truly honoured and humbled that I was chosen to receive this prestigious award,” he said. “It has been a pleasure serving the city these last 30 plus years. I’ve had the privilege of working in a wonderful community with the best staff anyone could ask for and under the dedicated leadership of elected officials, past and present. I’m proud of how far we’ve come as an organization and city.”

“Paul’s leadership and integrity have been an inspiration to staff and his vision has guided us in working together to make our city great,” said Wright.

“The award is well deserved.”
