For Immediate Release: January 31, 2017
Mayor David Dunphy is pleased to announce that a by-election has been called for May 1, 2017 for the vacant Council seat in Ward 2 – Stewart Cove. The seat was vacated by former Town Councillor Diane Griffin, who was appointed to the Senate of Canada by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau late last year.
The Writ of Election will be issued by the Chief Electoral Officer on March 27th, and nomination forms will be available from the Returning Officer at the Stratford Town Centre starting at that time.
“Serving on Council is a great privilege and responsibility,” stated Mayor Dunphy. “Stratford has many capable, talented residents who would make excellent Councillors. I invite Stratford residents to consider this opportunity to join our team as we continue to build a more inclusive and sustainable community in Stratford.”
