Robbie Brydon won the Burlington wards 1 &2 trustee seat yesterday with 64% of the vote.

His first run at local politics the economist should prove to be a welcome addition to the 11seat Halton District School Board Board of Trustees.

Robbie Brydon elected as trustee for Burlington wards 1&2

The unofficial results put Brydon so far ahead of the other six candidates that waiting for the official results isn’t going to change anything.

Brydon walks into a Board that will be reviewing the budget for the 2023-24 school year at the June 15th meeting of the Board.  It will be interesting to see how well prepared he will be.

The school board caters to 64,000 students attending elementary schools and high schools.

Trustees are not paid a salary but receive an honorarium of about $16,000 a year.  The Chair earns about $24,000

    A welcome win, but a disgrace that fewer than 2,000 people voted at all. As usual, a few years from now people will be whining about something they don’t like, but as with our politicians at all levels, we get what we deserve. Sometimes that is not a good thing.
