ABOUT TOWN and more with The Leader Post

    Joe Faas is running for a 5th term as Ward 4 Councillor. Approximately one-third of present-day councillors won't be returning in 2019 and Faas believes that his experience will still be needed around the council table. "If re-elected my top priorities will be to ensure that infrastructure budgets strive to be at 100% funded and that economic development remains top of mind as we invite new industry and business to our community while working to maintain what we already have," said Faas. Building a positive relationship with the Ford government is also on the Faas to do list.

   "Dresden and ward 4 residents are extremely important to me and I very much enjoy helping to solve problems and concerns they may have," noted Councillor Faas.
