Kawartha Lakes Cultural Centre Committee Chair
KAWARTHA LAKES: Congratulations to Mayor Andy Letham and Councillors Yeo, Seymour-Fagan, Elmslie, Veale, Dunn, Ashmore, O’Reilly and Richardson on their successful election to Council.
Kawartha Lakes Arts Council and the Kawartha Lakes Heritage Network look forward to working with Council to further strengthen cultural tourism and economic development in the Municipality.
Interested in electing candidates who support our cultural sector and who believe that long-term investment in the culture of the Kawartha Lakes is vital to our economic and social growth, Kawartha Lakes Arts Council advocated for solutions to the three significant current issues facing the sector; Sector Sustainability, Operational Leadership and Building Towards The Future.
artsVote 2018 emailed all the candidates seeking office in the October election to respond to a series of questions with their answers and how to address these issues. We are pleased to report that all members of the newly elected Council took the time to consider the background material on the artsVote website and responded to our questions.
Responses from all candidates are posted at www.kawarthalakesartscouncil.com/artsvote
Kawartha Lakes Arts Council will continue to advocate for strengthening the arts, culture and heritage sector with the new Council in 2019, and will be commenting on the upcoming Municipal draft budget.
