New Cornwall Ontario Mayor and City Council Sworn In – Bob Kilger back at the Helm – VIDEO – December 2, 2010

Cornwall ON – The second term for Cornwall Ontario Mayor Robert “Bob” Kilger began last night as he and his council were sworn in at the Civic Complex.

It was a clean event with many pleasant things said about the accomplishments of the last council and the hopes for the future albeit in a different atmosphere financially.

Here is Mayor Kilger’s Address.


A lot of ground was covered by the ten councilors from the emotional gratitude from Maurice Dupelle, who finally made it to council after all of his trying, to Denis Carr who as the senior man on Council (and probably will be elected for as long as he wishes to remain) shared his thanks with his family and city management who received mountains of praise from our ten newly inaugurated officials.

MPP Jim Brownell Showed up


It was great to see MPP Jim Brownell in attendence.  Missing was area MP Guy Lauzon.   The new mayor of Massena, James Hidy, attended and was given a standing O by Mayor Kilger and the crowd.

It should be an interesting four years; especially if the Federal election results in the number one vote getter, Bernadette Clement vacating a seat.

  1. I trust our “also rans” from the recent municipal race have submitted their applications for committees, commissions and boards.

    It will be interesting to see how the elected, view the applicants when it comes to filling lay positions.

    I know I applied for five committee positions. It will be interesting to see if I’m “invited” to any of them.

  3. I also ran in October’s Municipal election and even though I was forgotten by most of the Cornwall voters I submitted my name for 2 lay positions in areas where I feel I could do my best as a local poverty activist to really help our cities less fortunate on important issues.

  4. Hi everyone,

    I applied for several committees, as well, in an effort to let the electorate see what I can do! I can’t wait to see some of the committees formed and see who is fortunate enough to gain some valuable experience! I hope that all the committees will ensure they actively highlight the city’s successes proficiently and stay current with the our continuously changing economic climate!

    I have applied for 5 committees in the hopes of adding some energetic enthusiasm while ensuring that my experience, although young, can help create a well rounded committee.

    As you said, flipper, I need to show what I can do to earn the trust of the Cornwall Community! I do believe my biggest asset will be my ability to provide creative ideas while maintaining fiscal responsibility! I would love to serve with a few Councillors that I got to know better during the campaigning period and I would enjoy getting to know a few others even more!

    Thank You,
    Mike Bedard

  5. I think that everyone who campaigned in the last election should automatically be put on a committee (except one).
