Re-Elect Josh Morgan for FCM Board of Directors – Ontario Caucus

As the current Chair of FCM’s Community Safety and Crime Prevention Committee and the Vice-Chair of our FCM Election Readiness Working Group, I know how important our work is to securing sustainable investments in vital infrastructure, such as transit and broadband as well as modernizing the relationship with our federal partners.  I am committed to the time, effort and determination needed to get this job done.

Our incredible municipal partnership is strengthened by our diversity, from the smallest rural municipality to the largest cities. I am fully committed to respecting and embracing the diverse perspectives from the communities and the people that empower FCM to achieve for its members. That means we need to consult and listen as much as we lead and speak. I fully support that leadership approach and I look forward to engaging with you to continue to build a modern, effective, representative organization.  I truly believe that, together, we can achieve the type of modern, mature intergovernmental partnerships that we need to tackle the current challenges communities are facing.

Those who know me know that I am an honest, straightforward person who is focused on results. Today, I am asking for you to support once again to serve on the Board of the FCM.

If we have not connected yet, or if you have any questions at all.  Please do not hesitate to send me a message.
