The inauguration ceremony for the Milton Mayor and elected Councillors was held last night.
A lot of familiar faces were sworn in, with five of the eight Councillors returning from the last term.
One of the new names to be signed was Kristina Tesser Derksen.
And with the budget on the bill next week, Ward One’s new Town Councillor will have to hit the ground running.
Tesser Derksen adds that, over the next four years, she hopes she can provide a progressive approach to policy.
Another new name is Sameera Ali.
When Mayor Krantz said her name, Ward Four’s new Town Councillor says her journey had finally paid off.
Ali adds that she believes her chemistry with Ward Four Regional Councillor Zeeshan Hamid will mean great things for the Ward.
Along with the two new faces, there is one unique case.
John Challinor II was re-elected this past October, after not serving for several terms.
In his inaugural address, Mayor Krantz jokingly referred to Challinor as recycled.
Without skipping a beat, Challinor said the Mayor knows he believes in recycling.
Ward Two’s new Town Councillor says he feels like he never left.
Challinor adds that the Region hasn’t kept up on it’s commitment to Milton, focusing specifically on our roads.
