Clinton – A Mayor’s Mingle in Clinton provided Central Huron residents with a chance to get up close with their political representatives.

The area beneath the Grandstand at the Clinton Raceway provided the opportunity for taxpayers to address members of Central Huron council, Central Huron Mayor & Huron County Warden Jim Ginn, as well as Huron-Bruce MP Ben Lobb about local issues.

The crowd was larger than expected, and Ginn says the majority of people he talked to were very positive. He felt it shows some of the recent changes they’ve made in the county haven’t made Central Huron residents feel like they’re being left out.

MP Ben Lobb says there’s a lot going on in Central Huron, and the response he received revolved around why Central Huron continues to be a great place to live.

Ginn took the microphone after a barbecue dinner to confirm to residents that an Ontario Provincial Police detachment will be coming to Clinton, as well as a Hospice. Ginn further confirmed that Nuclear Waste Management has informed Central Huron they are off the list as a potential Deep Geologic Repository host, but says council will remain involved in those discussions moving forward.
