BROCK: A familiar face has returned to the mayor’s chair in Brock Township.
On Monday, March 15th, Brock council unanimously voted to appoint John Grant as the municipality’s next mayor, filling a seat which had been left vacant, following the death of Debbie Bath-Hadden.
“I know John will do a good job. He certainly did a good job in his previous term as mayor, so I look forward to working with him,” Regional Councillor Ted Smith said.
Mr. Grant had previously served as the township’s mayor from 2014 until 2018.
After the motion was approved, Mayor Grant took the oath of office and received the mayoral chains.
“To council, thank you for the trust you placed in me. I’m honoured to accept the appointment as mayor. For us, there’s much work to undertake to provide the services to the residents of Brock Township. This will be accomplished by our teamwork with council and staff. Finally, and foremost, let us all remain vigilant during this pandemic. With a vaccine on the horizon, there is light at the end of the tunnel,” Mayor Grant said.
