Mayor Kim Love has been elected once again.
On Monday Mayor of Madawaska Valley Township Kim Love was appointed to represent Zone 6 on the Board of Directors of the Rural Ontario Municipal Association.
Throughout the Province, there are nine zones in total. Zone 6 includes 48 municipalities, including Bancroft.
Mayor Love says there were 1,200 delegates at the conference held in Toronto. Out of those 1,200, they had to gather up 75 delegates belonging to Zone 6. She says the experience was like “finding a needle in the haystack”. Out of those 75, five were vying for votes to represent Zone 6. At the end of the day, she was the one that was chosen.
As for her goal, Love says she wants to make sure Zone 6 has a strong voice. She says the association is there to represent regions that don’t have a big population. With that being said, she says she wants to make sure the Government is listening to rural Ontario before they create a policy.
When it comes to juggling the new job with her current job as Mayor, she says “it won’t affect it” and adds that it will only add more work for her. She continues by boasting about how great council and staff at the Madawaska Valley Township are.
Accompanying her in Toronto, she said Councillor Peplinski, Willmer and Shulist were there supporting her as she campaigned.
