In City Hall

At a Special Council Meeting held last night, newly elected Councillor Darrell Toms took the Oath of Office, officially joining Council for the Municipality of Port Hope, representing Ward 2.

“I am looking forward to working with my rural neighbours and being your voice on Council,” notes Councillor Toms, who was voted in by his constituents in the recent Ward 2 By-election held on June 6.

At the meeting, Councillor Toms gave a short address to the community where he thanked his supporters and shared that he is happy to be sitting alongside his fellow councillors.

Each member of the Council also shared brief remarks to welcome Councillor Toms and congratulate him on his recent by-election victory.
