MEDIA RELEASE COUNCIL FILLS VACANT SEAT

Town Council has unanimously appointed John Kirby to fill the vacant Council position following the passing of Councillor Steve Bruce in June.

Provincial legislation requires that Council either appoint or call a by-election within 60 days of a vacancy occurring.  Mayor Bernice Jenkins stated “Considering the cost of the election and because we are in the last half of our term, we decided to appoint a new Councillor. This is a unique position for Council as it is normally the job of our citizens to decide who sits at the Council table to represent them. We took this responsibility very seriously. The criteria in making this appointment were: the person must be a Dungannon resident, someone known to Council, proven interest in the community, history of volunteering and a sense of Council protocol. I am delighted to welcome John to our table”.

John Kirby’s community involvement includes: volunteering for the Art Gallery of Bancroft since 2001 and a Director since 2006, Board member of the Community Futures Development Corporation for the past 10 years (he recently resigned as secretary due to this appointment), and past municipal appointee to the Quinte Health Care volunteer committee.

Prior to retirement in 2001, Mr. Kirby was a technical sales and marketing representative, specializing in international business. John and his wife Carol live in Dungannon ward and have attended Council meetings on a regular basis.
