Thames Centre welcomed the incoming 2022 to 2026 Municipal Council at its Inaugural meeting on November 16, 2022. Mayor Sharron McMillan, Deputy Mayor Michelle Smibert, Ward 1 Councillor Tom Heeman, Ward 2 Councillor Danielle Lockie and Ward 3 Councillor Chantel Crockett each declared their Oath of Office in a formal swearing-in ceremony.

“Service is something I believe in very strongly and I do not take my position lightly,” said Mayor McMillan.

“As mayor, I am one person and only one person. Around me will be a team of exceptional Councillors, each bringing their work and life experience to the horseshoe. The real measure of the success of our efforts over the next few years will be not just in the decisions we make, but the way in which we make them.”

“Over the next little while, while we begin learning our new roles and putting together our goals and visions for the next 100 days, along with the expertise of the members of staff. I have every confidence that we will be able to manage all that comes our way with the best interests of Thames Centre in mind.”

In Mayor Sharron McMillan’s inaugural remarks, she acknowledged and thanked all members of the past council for their service to the municipality and wished them every success in whichever paths they choose.

Council will begin orientation on November 28th with budget meetings beginning December 12th.
