Leamont shines among promising young talent

It is encouraging to see so many people running in the municipal election.

It is encouraging to see so many people running in the municipal election.  No candidate apathy in Lake Country this year.  Let’s hope there will be no voter apathy when the day comes to cast our ballots.

It is encouraging also to see so many young people who were former students at George Elliot coming forward.  The school has always been an integral part of the community and it is good to see that some of our youth have been able to remain in the area and are willing to devote their time and energy to city council.

Carr’s Landing residents have been fortunate to have had Barbara Leamont representing them since 2002.  Barbara takes the time to answer all emails and telephone messages promptly.  She is a good listener and never dismisses a resident’s concern whether big or small.  Barbara is diligent in discharging the duties of a councillor.  If she does not have the answer to a query, she will get right on with finding the information required.  Barbara has served the community well, and the Carr’s Landing area in particular.  It is my hope that residents will return her to office on 19 November.
