Thank You!

The results of the municipal election are in, and so is a mostly new Council. I am very grateful for your support and trust and I will work hard to try to live up to your expectations.

I want to thank my husband, Mike Maydan, and those who contributed to my campaign and worked visiting door-to-door with me. I received warm advice and support from so many former council members and residents, including but not limited to, the large PRATAC family led by Brian Gallagher and Gerry Belisle. The experience taught me about all of Mississippi Mills. I admire the courage of those who stepped up and those who supported them. Thanks to those residents who invited me into their homes – and sometimes families – who walked their neighbourhoods with me and educated me on their histories and concerns.

On August 1, Mike and I met two members of Canada’s Socchi Olympic Gold Medal Team: Ryan and E.J. Harnden. We have long been curling fans, especially of Team Jacobs.

I asked if I could take a picture with them, saying that I thought it might be lucky as I was running for Council in my little town. E.J. grinned and agreed, saying “You’d better hold this then,” handing me his heavy gold medal. I was awestruck.

I feel just that way to the power of ten today. Thank you.
