Former Huron County Warden Says Political Future Still Possible

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

Paul Gowing reflects on time as Huron County Warden, councillor.

Huron County's first Warden to serve a two-year term, has attended his last Council meeting.

Paul Gowing was elected by his fellow Councillors in 2014, after a motion was passed to extend the Warden's term from one year.

Gowing tells Country 104.9 News that he's pleased with what County Council has accomplished since the term was doubled.

He was among those who agreed four years ago, that a one-term Warden was just getting used to the job when it came time to contest the seat again or be replaced.

Gowing reflects that Council and senior staff have formed a much closer working relationship in the past several years, after a period of controversy.

He has served on Morris-Turnberry Council for 15 years, most recently as Mayor.

Gowing doesn't count out a possible return to the political arena in the future.

Huron County Councillors will decide between incumbent Warden Jim Ginn and challenger Jim Fergusson, when they vote for a new leader at their inaugural meeting on December 12th.
