As most are aware, I have been honoured to be an elected Councillor in the Town of Lincoln for close to 18 years. And, wow, it has been an amazing journey.
I have had the opportunity to work with three very different Mayors — Ray Konkle, Bill Hodgson, and Sandra Easton. Each had/has their areas of strength and all have, in their own way, been good leaders for our Municipality.
Lincoln is on a phenomenal path — we have solid leadership at the senior and CAO level, we have a Council that really has its act together, we have a business community that is investing in our municipality, and we have exciting projects that are coming up that will really put our Town on the map.
On a personal level, I have been debating on a 2018 political change. Of course, much will depend on what Bill Hodgson decides to do, but I am thinking if running for Niagara Region as Lincoln’s Councillor, should the opportunity presents itself.
Niagara Region requires change. It requires a move away from the crazy political drama. It requires focus. It requires Councillors who understand their role. And it requires a collaborative approach with Muncipalities to make Niagara the best that it can be.
More to come in the new year.
Season’s Greetings 🙂
