Sallie A. Brothers steps down from St. Lawrence County Legislature


CANTON - St. Lawrence County legislator Sallie A. Brothers, D-Norfolk, is resigning effective Sept. 25 for health reasons.

Mrs. Brothers, 65, River Road, Norfolk, has served on the board for the past 10 years including serving as chair in 2011 and 2012.

“I have some health issues that I need to address,” Mrs. Brothers said. “This was an extremely hard and emotional decision for me because I’m passionate about working for things that benefit this county.”

She announced her decision to fellow legislators at Monday evening’s Operations Committee meeting.

Mrs. Brothers represents District 12 which includes the town of Norfolk and the village of Norwood.

She said county Democratic Chairman Mark J. Bellardini will seek a replacement for her seat. His recommendation will be forwarded to the full board for its approval. The board now has nine Democrats and six Republicans.
