North Welcomes Greater Cabinet Representation

The Federation of Northern Ontario Municipalities (FONOM) extends its congratulations to Bill Mauro, the newest member of Premier Kathleen Wynne’s cabinet.

Minister Mauro’s northern Ontario roots will help him to be an effective and active voice for northern Ontario within the Cabinet, as Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing.

“Having more representation for the north in cabinet is certainly welcome, and we trust Mr. Mauro will continue speak up for our communities in the north,” said Al Spacek, Mayor of Kapuskasing. “He’s had firsthand experience with the realities of northern municipalities, which will serve him well for the days ahead.”

FONOM looks forward to working with Mr. Mauro on issues important to northern municipalities, and hopes his appointment indicates an increased level of attention to northern issues from the provincial government.
