Farbridge moves up in the ranks

Mayor Karen Farbridge has been elected vice-chair of the Large Urban Mayor’s Caucus of Ontario, putting her on track to become the organization’s chair in two years.
The caucus is made up of 26 mayors representing cities with populations of over 100,000.
Barrie’s Mayor Jeff Lehman was elected LUMCO’s new chair for a two-year term, succeeding Mississauga’s Mayor Hazel McCallion, who is retiring. Farbridge would become the group’s next chair in two years, a news release said.
“I’m honoured to be elected as vice-chair,” said Farbridge in the release.
“I look forward to working together with mayors of other large Ontario cities to keep urban issues and opportunities front and centre,” she said.
The group works to advance the standards of municipal government through public policy development, advocacy and discussion.
It represents the viewpoint of large urban municipalities within the Association of Municipalities of Ontario and other levels of government.
The group’s key priorities for 2014 include gridlock and transit, the rising cost of emergency services and job creation, the release said.
