Kenora's new Mayor elect Dan Reynard and councillors have Mayor Dave Canfield's stamp of approval.
"It looks pretty good. You know, people like Andrew Poirier coming back, Chris Van Walleghem that were there. Some new councillors. A couple that didn't get in I would have liked to seen in, but that's politics. I think it's going to be good. The things is, they have to keep their eye on the ball moving forward and have vision, and understand why they're there," he said.
Canfield offered some advice for the new mayor and council.
"They're not there to run the community. They're there to have vision for the community, set policy, and get things moving. We have a great staff and team that will run the city. That's one of the first lessons you have to learn, especially as a new councillor," he said.
Canfield also said he is supporting Mayor elect Dan Reynard every step of the way.
"I think we're going to be fine. You know, Dan's had 4 years, and I'm going to be working with him over the next month or so to help him with different things. As I told them, I'm going to be around, I'm not going anywhere. So, any help they need to anything," he said.
The first Committee of the Whole meeting for the new mayor and council is scheduled for Tuesday December 11.
