Stouffville Mayor Iain Lovatt is looking to extend his stay in the top seat for four more years. He announced he is running for re-election earlier this month.
“Four years ago, I was elected on a vision to build a strong, unified council that delivers for our town and works collaboratively with regional, provincial and federal levels of government to get the job done for the residents of Whitchurch-Stouffville,” Lovatt said.
“I am proud to say that we have successfully developed a new strategic plan with clear goals to guide us into the future. We have put forward an economic development plan that is helping us balance our tax base.”
Lovatt said the brand of Whitchurch-Stouffville has been restored during his tenure, which has allowed the town to retain and attract staff.
Moving forward towards election day on October 24, Lovatt said he remains focused on delivering strong, stable and dependable leadership that residents expect. “Now isn’t the time to stop the progress we have made. Together, we’re going to continue building a Whitchurch-Stouffville where our businesses flourish, where services to residents are delivered with excellence, where families thrive and where our next generation can return to not only start their families but also to work where they live,” he said.
Back in 2018, Lovatt defeated incumbent Mayor Justin Altmann, whose term was marred by high-profile staff departures, multiple integrity commissioner investigations and legal battles between Altmann and the town.
Lovatt also announced a lengthy list of endorsements, including York Region Chair Wayne Emmerson, Markham-Stouffville MPP Paul Calandra and community members like Dr. Pearl Yang and Kevin Kerr.
