Public Meeting for 'Elect the Chair'
Submitted by Doug Anderson on April 2, 2012 - 4:40pm
The 1st stage in the triple majority required to make the public election of the Regional Chair a reality occurs:
Wednesday, April 4, 2012, 10:00 am,
Durham Region Headquarters, Council Chambers.
This meeting is to hear the public's voice on the direct election of the Regional Chair.
You do not need to register in order to speak. This is an open, public meeting. A strong showing is needed.
Once the public has finished, the Regional Council will vote on the proposed by-law.
Please come out and show your support for this important democratic step. Share this on your facebook page.
Assuming the motion passes (a simple majority is required), a similar motion will be presented to each of the local council. If 4 of those council ( a majority) pass the motion and the population of those 4 municipalities is a majority of the Region then the province will amend the election procedure in time for the 2014 municipal elections.
