Grey Highlands Mayor Paul McQueen is seeking a third term in the mayor’s chair.
The long-time member of Grey Highlands council formally announced his bid for reelection this week. He is the third candidate to announce they are running for the mayor’s position joining current Coun. Danielle Valiquette and newcomer Don Alp.
“I’m excited to put my name forward as mayor. With my experience, I will continue to work with the new council and staff to achieve the vision as Canada’s most inspired and well-managed rural community,” McQueen said after announcing his intentions.
McQueen has served as mayor for the past two terms on council. Previously he had a term as deputy mayor and a term as councillor and also served on Osprey Township council prior to municipal restructuring. McQueen also served as Grey County Warden in 2020.
McQueen said there are a number of community projects underway, or on the verge of starting that he would like to help shepherd.
“I want to be part of the completion of the new hospital and building of the new Beavercrest school that the community worked so hard to save,” he said.
