Jim Fergusson Vyes For Huron County Warden Job

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

Fergusson says affordable housing, economic development would be his prorities, if elected Warden.

Members of the incoming Huron County Council will have a choice to make at their first meeting.

As we mentioned recently, incumbent Warden Jim Ginn is running to stay in the job, but veteran Councillor Jim Fergusson has announced he's also vying for the Warden's position.

Fergusson believes affordable housing and economic development should be among the pillars of Council policy through the next four years.

He says most real estate agents will tell you that demand for affordable housing units in Huron far outpaces the number of available units.

Fergusson would encourage construction of affordable housing, either through special levies on construction companies or by applying for special assistance from the province.

Fergusson tells Country 104.9 News that Huron County should be in a leadership position on economic development, especially with 20 thousand new jobs coming to Bruce Power by 2060.

Ginn meantime says he wants another two years, to give Huron County a stronger voice and closer relationship with Queen's Park.

County Council members vote for the new Warden on inauguration day, December 12th.
