Letter to the Editor
To all the residents of the Municipality of Meaford,
It has been an honour to serve on the municipal council for the last 11 years – 7 as mayor. I want to thank you for your support over these years. It has not always been easy but a great deal has been accomplished and I am very pleased to be stepping down at this time.
You all know how important Meaford is to me. I have been delighted to give back to the community that did so much for me as I was growing up here.
I want to thank the other members of council and the staff for their support over this time. No one person can accomplish anything on his or her own in our municipal government. I have received tremendous support and, with that, a great number of things have been done.
I ask you to support the incoming council in the same way you have supported me. Much still needs to be done. You have the council and staff in place to do it.
I look forward to being a “member of the Public”!
Mayor Francis Richardson, Meaford
