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.

Just a reminder to try and not park on the street if you’re able during this storm to help the plows do their work and clear as much snow as possible. Safe driving to all who have to be out tonight! ... See MoreSee Less

Marc Laferriere Councillor-Elect for Ward 2 - Paris

Here are two news clipping regarding the potential transit system for the county. This was a major issue this election and something I and a few other council members and many community members have been working on for years.

A council member from another ward took out an election ad that implied this system would be just for Paris. That is not accurate.

Folks, read the information for yourself from outside news sources and let me know any thoughts, feelings or reactions you might have.

Thanks in advance for your consideration and engaged input.
