Brockton Mayor Won't Seek Re-Election

Owen Sound | by Robyn Garvey  

David Ingles ready to step aside from politics

Brockton Mayor David Inglis is not seeking reelection.

Inglis says after a lot of thought, he has decided that he is ready for this
move.

Inglis has spent three terms on Council, 4 years as a councilor and the last
8 years as a mayor.

During this time he also served two terms as Bruce County Warden. (2010 to
2014)

Prior to his municipal political career, Inglis spent 12 years as a school
board trustee.

After 24 years in local politics, Inglis says he is ready to slow down,
travel a little more and just relax.

Looking back, Inglis says he would do it all over again, calling the last 12
years on Brockton Council a very rewarding experience.

His advice to his successor and the new Brockton Council is to be positive,
look at the big picture and always work together as a team.

Inglis says it was his goal on Council to help move Brockton forward, and he
believes Council has done that.

Over the years, Inglis notes that the municipality has increased economic
development activity, the downtown is looking great and the municipality
has made many positive strides.

Inglis attributes much of this success to the community that has provided the
initiative and rallied behind many worthy projects.

In fact Inglis says working with the community has been the highlight of his
political career.
