It’s been one month since Whitehorse elected a brand new Mayor and Council. I am very pleased to be part of this team. Our historic swearing-in ceremony (with COVID-19 safety protocols in place) was presided by Chief Justice Suzanne Duncan and attended by a variety of local dignitaries, family and friends. A strong emphasis was placed on First Nations involvement and we were pleased to include members of both the Kwanlin Dun First Nation, and the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council as part of the ceremony. Thanks again for joining us on such a special evening.
Council has been busy with numerous meetings and workshops, as we learn to understand the City and its departments, our roles and responsibilities, and pressing issues that require our attention and direction. The City continues to follow the recommendations from the Chief Medical Officer of Health, and it remains a priority to ensure the safety of our staff and patrons of our facilities. Please be kind to frontline workers!
During the election, I committed to enhanced transparency and public engagement at the City, if elected. One way to address that is by developing the Mayor’s Corner, an opportunity for me, as your Mayor, to update you every second week on important initiatives, decisions and upcoming matters that may impact you. On alternating weeks, you can catch my updates on CHON-FM’s City Matters segment on Tuesday mornings at 8:05 with Dylan McNeil.
Enjoy the fluffy snow and the holiday lights our crews have been busy setting up around the city. I really look forward to seeing many of you at the Winterval Parade on Dec. 4th!
