Congratulations are going out to Westport Mayor Robin Jones who has been elected to the position of Chair for the Eastern Ontario Wardens’ Caucus (EOWC).

The vote was held yesterday at the organizations’s general meeting in Kingston and Jones shared the news on her Blog.

That statement also explained the purpose of the EOWC. It works to support and advocate on behalf of the property taxpayers across rural Eastern Ontario, and covers and area from Cobourg to the Quebec border, including all the Lake 88 listening area.

In all it services 13 upper-tier and single-tier municipalities as well as 90 local municipalities covering 45,000 square kilometers, and serves 750,000 residents.

The group made up of County wardens and other municipal officials strives to ensure its collective voice is heard on issues to be dealt with the federal and provincial policy makers, business leaders, the media and the public.
