South Bruce Peninsula mayor Janice Jackson has been re-elected as Bruce County Warden.
At the Thursday, Dec. 2, council meeting, Bruce County Council re-elected Janice Jackson, mayor of South Bruce Peninsula, as Bruce County’s warden for the 2022 term. This is Mayor Janice Jackson’s second term as County Warden, having served in the role in 2021 as well.
Jackson was elected to municipal council in South Bruce Peninsula in 2010 and was then elected as mayor in 2014 and 2018.
“It is an honour to have my Council colleagues once again instill me with the responsibilities of Warden for the upcoming year,” said Warden Janice Jackson. “Together, we are working to keep our region safe, protect our most vulnerable, and help our economy recover. I look forward to pursuing a continued focus on affordable housing, quality infrastructure, and community safety initiatives. 2022 will be an exciting year for Bruce County, with many emerging opportunities for businesses, workers, and families.”
The position of Warden is achieved through a vote of peers on County Council, which is comprised of eight locally elected municipal leaders who manage the affairs of our shared community and resources. The warden chairs council meetings, represents Bruce County at official functions, acts as an official spokesperson, and much more. Mayor Janice Jackson is Bruce County’s second female warden. Tessie Greig, from Lion’s Head, was elected as Bruce County’s first female warden in 1965.
