On February 22, we marked Council’s first 100 days in office – a milestone that provides an opportunity to reflect on our collective accomplishments so far. Approving our first budget. Undertaking a review of the City’s corporate strategic plan. Pausing to reimagine Junction East. Calling for a Housing Supply Strategy. Reducing barriers to conduct business with City Hall. And throughout it all, meeting citizens across Greater Sudbury at winter carnivals and hockey games, fundraisers and gala dinners, ceremonies and other special events.
While we have already accomplished a lot, we also have much to look forward to. As we chart the path from the first 100 days to the next thousand and beyond, I am focused on our City’s greatest resource of all – our people. When it comes to making Greater Sudbury the best place to live, work and play, Council and I cannot do it alone.
The community events I attend reveal how engaged citizens improve the quality of life in our neighbourhoods. Every day, I see the number of services that City staff and our first responders provide. We need our workforce, our volunteers and all our citizens to continue believing in the potential of our great city.
I know that, by working together, we will make good things happen for Greater Sudbury.
Mayor Paul Lefebvre
