Councillor Gérard Miner

Ward 4 - West Hawkesbury

I have always appreciated the collaborative atmosphere on Champlain Council and I am committed to respecting the opinions of other Councillors. I expect the same from others.

I have always taken the time to be prepared for my meetings and I intend to continue to do so. I do not make final decisions on issues until I have heard from our management staff and other council members, as the results of deliberations should be made with full understanding.
