Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), at the AMO conference held August 19-22 in Ottawa.
"I am honoured to once again serve as a member of AMO's Board of Directors," said

Ontario, and the association provides cities with a forum to jointly advocate for issues facing
municipalities such as infrastructure and transit funding."

Restructuring Task Force, Urban and Regional Task Force, Fiscal and Labour Policy Committee and
the Minister of Energy's Electricity Transition Committee.
AMO's key advocacy priorities are focused on achieving fiscal sustainability for municipal
governments and strengthening municipal legislative authority to advance local economic well
being and environmental sustainability.
