Mayor Goldring Re-Elected to AMO Board of Directors

This August, I was re-elected to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Board of Directors, Large Urban Caucus. The election was held at AMO’s 2016 Conference in Windsor in mid-August, which I attended with Burlington councillors Paul Sharman and Blair Lancaster. I have served as chair of the Large Urban Caucus for the past two years. The new term will run from 2016-2018.

As a member of the board, I will help set policy for AMO and serve as a key municipal leader in the province. I am pleased to be able to continue to promote Burlington’s interests and work with other Ontario municipalities to create the best possible communities for our citizens.
