Twolan Eyes Bruce County Warden Role

Bruce County | by John Divinski  

Huron-Kinloss mayor has been warden a number of times since serving on county council

Huron Kinloss Mayor and Bruce County Councillor Mitch Twolan is letting his name stand for election as Warden in 2019.

Twolan made the announcement at the regular County Council meeting on Thursday, Novembrer 1st.

He says he's "enthralled" with the position of Warden and wants to help guide the county through what he believes will be exciting economic times in 2019 and beyond.

Twolan says some issues he wants to address have been around for a while, such as being ready for the Bruce Power refurbishment project; bringing natural gas service to southern Bruce County and social and affordable housing for the region.

He says people can expect to see more development of all kinds in the county in the future and they need to be ready to welcome it.

Twolan is no stranger to the Warden's position.

Since serving on county council beginning in 2004, he has been Warden four separate times in 2007, 2015, 16, and 17.

So far no one else has indicated they're interested in the Warden's job.

An election for the position will be made at the next county council meeting, December 6th.

If successful, Twolan replaces outgoing Warden Paul Eagleson, who was defeated in the recent municipal election in Arran Elderslie.

Eagleson says some exciting times are ahead for Bruce County and he would have liked to have been a part of it, but the electorate has chosen a new mayor for the municipality, who will take over as the county councillor rep for Arran Elderslie in December.
