Earlier this week at the annual Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) conference, Niagara Regional Councillor Rob Foster was re-elected to the AMO Board of Directors Regional for two-year term.
This is Councillor Foster’s second term on the AMO Board of Directors. Councillor Foster, a first-term Regional Councillor from the Town of Lincoln, was first elected to town council in by-election in 2001 has remained active in his community since that time.
AMO is a non-partisan, non-profit organization that works to support and enhance Ontario’s 444 municipalities to achieve shared goals and meet common challenges through advocacy, policy and consultative opportunities. It promotes the value of the municipal level of government as a vital and essential component of the Provincial and Federal Governments.
“On behalf of Regional Council, I want to offer my sincere congratulations to Councillor Foster on his successful reappointment to the AMO Board of Directors,” said Regional Chair Jim Bradley. “While Niagara continues to cope with the impacts of COVID-19 on operations and budgets, the work of AMO has never been more important. I am confident that Councillor Foster will continue to ensure our priorities are brought forward, and Niagara will have a strong seat at the table.”
“It is my honour and privilege to continue representing Niagara on the AMO Board of Directors,” said Regional Councillor Rob Foster. “Municipalities are experiencing unprecedented challenges that will continue require extraordinary cooperation between all of Ontario’s 444 communities and the Provincial Government. I am eager to continue being Niagara's voice on the AMO board and make sure our Region is well represented among our peers.”
Councillor Foster is representing the Region as part of the Regional and Single-Tier Caucus. Other representatives in the caucus include elected officials from the Regions of Halton, Durham, Peel and Waterloo, as well as the Cities of Ottawa and Sudbury.
