Morse Leaving Post with City of Clinton

More changes in Clinton City leadership will be effective this weekend.

WLBG News confirmed yesterday afternoon that Robin Morse is leaving his employment with the City of Clinton. Morse has served as the Director of Clinton’s Department of Public Safety for the past several years. He previously served several years as Laurens Police Chief and before that was with the Sheriff’s Office.

Robin Morse’s only comment for WLBG yesterday was that this Friday, September 28th, will be his final day of employment with the City of Clinton. He declined to make any other statements regarding the manner at this time.

Last month, Clinton City Council abolished the Department of Public Safety in two special-called meetings, ordering a return to separate police and fire departments. City Manager Bill Ed Cannon immediately announced the hiring of a Union man as Interim Fire Chief, over the current Fire Commander Scott Shifflet.

Since City Manager Bill Ed Cannon’s employment with Clinton in January, other key city leadership departures have included Assistant City Manager Jerre Threatt.

Our call to Clinton City Manager Bill Ed Cannon early yesterday afternoon regarding Robin Morse’s departure from employment with the City of Clinton had not been returned as of this morning’s news deadline.
