BOLIVIA—Brunswick County’s Department of Social Services Director was fired Tuesday afternoon.
Patty Connelly was hired as DSS director by the board on April 11, 2011. She was fired on Aug. 28 and escorted from the building.
The board has been meeting in several recent closed sessions, which it did again on Tuesday. After returning to open session, board member Bernest Hewett made the motion to terminate Connelly.
“I move to end Ms. Connelly’s employment,” Hewett said.
