Lynn Peterson says she appreciates the time she's spent serving the community as an elected official and that it's been a real honour. The outgoing mayor is proud of the many projects that she has overseen. She says initiatives like the Northern Ontario School of Medicine, the waterfront development and the new courthouse are moving the city forward. Peterson says while she feels she ran a good campaign, clearly the community wanted some change. While she has no immediate plans, Peterson says she will stay involved in the community.
Paul Pugh showed a strong win in the McKellar Ward and says he's honoured voters have given him their trust. During his campaign he found the efforts of community groups in his ward encouraging and wants the city to do more to work with neighbourhood groups. Pugh says his next step is to do further research into the city's issues as he prepares to take his seat on council.
