New Tecumseth Council have filled Ward 5 Councillor vacancy

NEW TECUMSETH, ON – At a Special Council meeting held on Nov. 20, New Tecumseth Council voted to appoint Peter W. Anderson as Ward 5 Councillor effective immediately and for the remainder of the Council term ending on Nov. 30, 2018.

Mr. Anderson was the successful candidate for the Ward 5 Councillor position, that was left vacant when Donna Jebb was appointed to the Deputy Mayor position on Oct. 21, 2017 following the passing of former Deputy Mayor Jamie Smith on Aug. 1, 2017.

An open call for applications was held and 14 candidates expressed their interest in filling the Ward 5 Councillor vacancy.

“We would like to thank each of the 14 candidates for their interest in serving their community through the Ward 5 Councillor position. We are pleased to have appointed Mr. Anderson as Ward 5 Councillor and look forward to him joining our Council as our new representative for Ward 5,” said New Tecumseth Mayor Rick Milne.
