Melanie Breton looks forward to upcoming term on Kap town council

A new face to the Kapuskasing political scene is looking forward to her upcoming term on town council.  Melanie Breton says she was thrilled with her support during Monday’s municipal election where she secured the most votes of any town councillor at more than 1,100.

“I have a variety of emotions since yesterday but also throughout my campaign,” he said. “I received an overwhelming amount of support from residents. I’m happy, excited but most importantly I have much gratitude to the residents for putting their faith and trust in me.”

Breton joins Guylaine Scherer to be one of two women to sit on town council at the same time.

“My strength is economic development therefore I truly hope I get appointed this pillar as I have gained much resources and knowledge in this field throughout the years,” Breton said. “I’d also like to see more residential housing development and affordable housing.”
