Ward 1 Councillor Darlene Beniuk becomes Deputy Mayor effective February 1, 2021
Effective today, Ward 1 Councillor Darlene Beniuk will take on the role of Deputy Mayor. She follows Ward 7 Councillor Colin Cote, who has served as Deputy Mayor for the past four months.
At the 2019 Organizational Meeting, County Council changed the Deputy Mayor position from a one-year to a four-month term, allowing each Councillor a chance to act as Deputy Mayor before the next municipal election.
After Deputy Mayor Beniuk’s term is up at the end of May 2021, Councillor Jason Stedman will serve in the position until the October 2021 municipal election.
