Statement from Mayor Andy Letham on the Federal Election
On behalf of Council I would like to congratulate Jamie Schmale on being elected Member of Parliament for Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock.
Jamie is committed to our riding and in conversations with him I know he is passionate about Kawartha Lakes, our future, our residents and businesses.
I have made it clear that Kawartha Lakes has serious challenges with our infrastructure.
There is too much at stake to focus on our differences. The time for partisan politics is over.
Voters across the country have spoken loud and clear. I know Jamie will be a strong voice and tireless advocate for our residents and will work collectively with the governing party to help bring opportunity to our area.
I look forward to working with Jamie to push our Kawartha Lakes agenda forward and to keep it top of mind in Ottawa, while ensuring we receive the attention and financial support we need.
Over the coming weeks I look forward to meeting with Jamie to discuss in more detail our challenges and to learn how he will work with elected officials regionally to strengthen our community.
Congratulations Jamie and I look forward to working together.
