Mayor Hilda MacDonald's Message

As this new term of Council begins, I want to express my gratitude for the opportunity to be your Mayor for the next four years.

I am happy to be returning in a new capacity with last term Council members Bill Dunn, John Hammond, John Jacobs and Tim Wilkinson.

We welcome the newcomer to the table, Paul Tiessen, recognizing that Paul is not a new face to the municipal office, but is familiar for having served on the Committee of Adjustment for the past few years.

Last, but not least, is former two-term Councillor, Larry Verbeke who will be serving as Deputy Mayor. 

What will we bring to our community?

We will do better. 

We will build on the groundwork of the past, respecting what and who has gone before.

We will recognize that not only has our community changed in the last 30 years, so has society, so has the world.

We will bring forward opportunities and methods for businesses and entrepreneurs to grow and prosper. 

We will strive to be fair and equitable in every decision made; every plan devised.

We will work hard to make Leamington a place where people want to raise their children; where people want to return after pursuing higher education; where people want to locate business; where people want to age in place.

In the coming months, Council together with administration, will map out the strategic direction for the next four years; always keeping in mind the bigger picture. We will look beyond this term of Council to the next 10-20 years.

As Henry Ford so aptly put it…..”Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success”.
