CANTON St. Lawrence County Public Health Director Susan J. Hathaway will retire Aug. 30.
Ms. Hathaway said her tenure at the county has been stressful so she decided to take the opportunity to step down.
I am of retirement age, she said. Its been a rough few years with so many programs being cut. Its a time of a lot of change for Public Health. Its very hard for people who have worked here, sometimes for 35 years. Theres more change ahead.
Ms. Hathaway said she plans to move to Asheville, N.C.
