Ward 3 Councillor John Taylor

Ward 3 Councillor John Taylor – has decided not to run in the October election

When asked how any Mayors he had served – he listed them all and said the one he liked best was Walter Mulkewich, a friend he has lunch with frequently.

There was a lot of remembering and reminiscing.

The Gazette will write a more length on Taylor’s decision and what it could mean to the city.

He will meet with his constituents in the rural part of his ward Thursday evening.

A big part of Burlington’s municipal growth took place while Taylor was in office.

    John, you have served us well in Ward 3 for these many years. You deserve a rest from the day-to-day stress that comes with the territory of being a Burlington Councillor. Time to enjoy the pleasure of not having to be somewhere and do something at a certain time. You get to choose. It’s called retirement and it’s great. Have a good one.

  • Joe Gaetan

    John,I wish you the best and thank you for your years of public service.

    Thank you John Taylor for your many years of good service to Burlington.

    Good Luck to your successor.

    I have read Mr. Rory Nisan’s many well thought out articles in the Gazette. Rory demonstrates extensive experience in international and community relations and excellence as an advocate for the Burlington community.

    I highly recommend Burlington citizens consider Rory Nisan as John’s replacement.
