I’m seeking re-election as your Mayor to continue to push for a fiscally responsible council that represents all the people of Grey Highlands. The job of council is to set Policy and give direction to the staff of the Municipality. The job of the Mayor is to preside over all the meetings and make sure the direction of council is carried out. I have this experience and can lead the new council forward.
I have served 3 terms on Grey County Council and have had the honour of being elected as the Warden of Grey County in 2020. As Warden, I presided over Grey County Council meetings and represented the County provincially and federally. I have been the Chair of the AMO (Association of Municipalities of Ontario) board, sat on the MOU board (Memorandum of Understanding) which included meeting with Provincial Ministers to discuss policies.
I would like to continue to work with Council to oversee the completion of the Markdale Hospital, Beavercrest School, and continue to advocate for more beds for Grey Gables Long Term Care Home at the County.
