Jim Ginn Named Huron County Warden For Second Term

Huron County | by Peter Jackson  

Ginn says broadband internet, economic development to be priorities over next 2 years.

There is no change in Huron County's top elected office.

Warden Jim Ginn Wednesday was re-elected by Councillors, in their first meeting of the new term.

Ginn is the first Warden to serve back-to-back terms, since the length of the Warden's tenure was extended to two years from one.

He counts the ongoing expansion of broadband Internet service among his highest priorities from now through 2020.

Ginn says high-speed digital communication is key to economic development.

He also cites continued agricultural development as critical to Huron County's economic well-being, and points to innovations coming from Huronview Farm.

Ginn believes a closer relationship with Bruce Power is needed, to help secure employment of Huron County workers at the world's largest nuclear electric generator.

With that in mind, Ginn stresses the need for new affordable housing throughout the County, and hiring skilled labour as new employers set up shop in our area.

Ginn defeated Councillor Jim Fergusson in secret balloting in County Council Chambers.

They are among just five incumbents from the last term, who return for another four years.

Council's first working meeting will be held on January 2nd.
