Corriveau Honored for Civic Work

      Civic leader Mary Corriveau accepted the Shapiro Award last night by talking about leadership and the need to take risks and be bold.  Ms. Corriveau has been very busy since leaving City Hall and was feted at annual Chamber of Commerce dinner.
      All of this is proof one can do good things without an official portfolio. I didn't make the dinner as I had plans but offer congratulations.

Worked with Mary at COW for 20+ years. Best CM during that tenure and she disciplined me more than once. She reminds me of a mother; stern and caring.
Thank You

Is this the former city manager? This is the one you rode out of city discreetly right?

C'mon Jeff.
This is yet another B.S. award given to the elitist clubbers of the area. These nonsense, feel good trophies need to be left in the past where they belong.
The worst being the insipid Athena award. Truly insulting to any intelligent woman.

Just curious, when's the last time you received such an award? Seems the working class continues to be ignored.

Mary was a hard worker in a thankless job. Good for her in picking up any award she's receiving.

Mrs. Corriveau did an excellent job for the City of Watertown in my opinion. As a resident here, I believe she desires a thank-you like this award.

Mrs. Corriveau was a fine employee who was promoted to a position where she was in slightly over her head. But who has held that job that was not in over their head? No one, that's who. Just like Ogdensburg.

As far as the silly awards go...good for her. If the giant paycheck the tax payers paid her was not enough recognition, then maybe this award will make up for it.

8:39, maybe you should apply since you sound as though you know what the qualifications are and who meets/doesn't meet them. But that would require you leaving your recliner and beer can for the interview, so probably not, right?
One thing about the north country, negativity reigns supreme.

While it is true Mary wasn't a "shoot from the hip" kind of person, there were others that were. She could have reined that type in, but chose not to. Not doing so cost us city taxpayers dearly.

Mary is a very fine lady, who is always there to help, anyone.. Hats off, to you..Mary and Jim are from the same mold; getting harder to find folks like these two, putting service to others, ahead of themselves.
