From The Brantford Expositor on October 24th, 2018:

Residents in Ward 2, which covers Paris, also voted for change electing newcomers Marc Laferriere and Steve Howes to unseat longtime councillor Shirley Simons.

Laferriere received 1,378 votes and Howes got 1,211, while Simons came in third with 770 votes. They were followed by Steve Acheson, who got 344 votes, Ellay Heys with 296 and Phil Ogborne with 52.

Thanking voters, Laferriere, attributed his successful campaign to several factors.

“I think my platform was a big part of the reason for our success,” he said.

“Issues like accessibility, transit and inclusion were front and centre and I think it spoke to a little bit more of the progressive politics people are looking for.”

“I’m looking forward to working with my wardmate, the rest of council, the new mayor and county staff to help move the county forward.”

Laferriere also thanked Shirley Simons for her decades of service.

“I’ve learned a great deal from her and she has contributed a great deal to our community.”

Laferriere received the most votes of any candidate in the ward races.

You can contact Marc directly at marc.laferriere@brant.ca or by phone at 226-934-7379 with your ideas, questions and concerns.

Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads out there! Also, a special thanks to everyone who has expressed support when we bring 1 or both of our kids out to public events and council duties.

I put it out in front street that if you were electing me you were getting someone who would also be prioritizing my two little ones and this community has been great at welcoming them and allowing me to be both a committed Dad and rep. Thanks for that from the bottom of my heart!

Give your kids a squeeze and show them your community and how we all work together to make it better 🙂
