ADJALA-TOSORONTIO – Mary Small Brett is the new mayor of Adjala-Tosorontio.
She has been on council for 14 years (10 years as councillor and four years as deputy mayor).
For deputy mayor, Doug Little is returning to the seat. The veteran municipal politician has 10 years experience as a councillor and 10 years as deputy mayor.
Small Brett said council will have its work cut out for it over the next four years.
“I’d like to thank the residents for giving me the honour of being their next mayor and I look forward to the many challenges that this term is going to bring,” she said.
She said growth issues and negotiating the new OPP contract will be some of the biggest challenges that lie ahead.
“We have a lot of work ahead of us…it’s just beginning,” she said.
Small Brett is taking the reins from longtime mayor Tom Walsh, who is retiring after three decades in municipal politics.
“I want to personally thank Tom Walsh, the mayor, for giving 30 plus years of service to the residents,” she said. “He’s done a great job and he’s going to be missed and I wish him well.”
