HALDIMAND—Haldimand County Council will head into 2019 priority planning and budgeting with three new faces around the table after councillors Stewart Patterson, Dan Lawrence and John Metcalfe were newly-elected in October.
Chief Administrative Officer Don Boyle said the County is excited to move forward and listen to the views of the new councillors.
“It’s always productive to gain new visions from different people on Council,” said Boyle, “We learn what is important to them as well as what they heard when they were campaigning.”
Mayor Ken Hewitt echoed Boyle’s sentiments saying the new councillors are no different than he was eight years ago, and says it is also a new experience for himself.
