Media Release – Stratford Town Councillor Keith MacLean Elected to National FCM Board

For Immediate Release:  June 12, 2017

The Town of Stratford is proud to announce the appointment of Councillor Keith MacLean to the Board of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM). Board elections took place at FCM’s June 1-4 national conference, which drew 2,000 municipal leaders from across Canada to the nation’s capital. Each year, FCM reserves two board member seats for Prince Edward Island representatives – one for the President of the Federation of Prince Edward Island Municipalities (FPEIM), and the other to be given to an elected board member. Stratford is pleased to have Councillor MacLean assume the role of PEI’s elected FCM board member for 2017.

“I am very excited to not only have the opportunity to better serve my own community of Stratford,” says MacLean, “but also to now be a voice for all municipalities across the province at FCM national meetings.”

FCM advocates for 2,000 local governments, representing more than 90 percent of all Canadians. As a member of FCM’s board, Councillor MacLean will help set the direction for an organization that is effectively transforming the role of municipalities on the national stage.

“Councillor MacLean is a valued member of the Stratford Town Council, and will be an excellent representative for Prince Edward Island on this year’s FCM Board,” says Stratford Mayor David Dunphy. “His dedication, experience, and passion for municipal growth and sustainable living will support the great work FCM is currently undertaking, and inspire more great initiatives to come.”

Over the last year, FCM has achieved unprecedented engagement with the federal government on local priorities. Following intensive advocacy by FCM, Federal Budget 2017 committed to invest $81-billion in infrastructure over 11 years—including affordable housing, transit expansions, green infrastructure, and rural, northern and remote priorities.

Councillor MacLean is currently a Stratford Town Councillor for Ward 1, Kelly’s Cove. MacLean is Chair of Stratford’s Planning Committee, and Vice-Chair of the Finance, Sustainability, and Community Energy Plan Committees. He is also an active member of the Diversity & Inclusion and Heritage Subcommittees.
