Jim Ginn Running For Re-Election As Warden

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

Ginn looking to serve second two-year term as Huron County Warden.

The incumbent Warden of Huron County is running for a second two-year term, and he has competition.

Jim Ginn says he wants to stay on in the job, to help guide new members who will be sworn in when Council's new term starts on December 12th.

His opposition in the race is Councillor Jim Fergusson, who has been involved in municipal politics for 11 of the last 15 years.

Ginn believes Wardens who serve for four years have a closer ear at Queen's Park, and are able to develop a relationship that can translate into increased funding for a variety of needs.

He says that some members of the Western Ontario Wardens' Caucus serve one year terms while some are on the job for two years, and a few others serve for four years.

Ginn says he could support a move to a four-year Warden's term in Huron County, if the issue was raised by Council some time in the future.

Fergusson's priorities for the Warden's job include affordable housing and economic development.

The Warden is elected by members of County Council.
