Jim Ginn will serve a one year term; Huron CAO Meighan Wark elected WOWC Secretary for 2020

2020 promises to be an even busier year for Huron County Warden Jim Ginn and Chief Administrative Officer Meighan Wark.

Ginn has been elected Chair of the Western Ontario Wardens' Caucus, while Wark will serve as the group's Secretary.

The Warden tells Country 104.9 News that the Wardens' Caucus represents 15 Counties, whose representatives can meet with provincial ministers on common concerns.

Ginn continues that the Caucus also occupies a chair on the Association of Municipalities of Ontario board, which meets usually six times a year.

He mentions that the Caucus continues to push the Southwest Integrated Fibre Technology program, to expand high-speed internet to rural areas.

Ginn explains that a SWIFT pilot project in three Counties was completed faster and for less cost than planned.

He hopes the province will give the green light for SWIFT to start in the other 12 Counties soon, and predicts the work will move along quickly.
