Deputy Mayor Dan Gieruszak encourages residents, community members, businessowners and members of the public to come out and wish Inglis well.
Inglis did not run in the recent election, as he decided it was time for achange of pace.
Gieurszak says there is a lot to celebrate as Inglis has served Brockton for12 long years.
Inglis began his municipal career as a councilor in 2006 and was electedMayor in 2010 and again in 2014.
During that time Inglis also served two terms as Bruce County Warden.
Geiurszak notes that his service to the public dates back much furtherthan when he first entered municipal politics.
Prior to municipal politics Inglis was: a past Director and President of theWalkerton Agriculture Society, a former Trustee and Chairman of the Bruce CountyBoard of Education, Member and President of the Canadian 4-H Council andDirector and President of Walkerton and District Community Living.
Looking back, Inglis says it has been an incredible journey, one that he isso pleased to have taken.
He says his ultimate goal as mayor of Brockton was to move the municipalityforward, something that he says has been done through increased economicdevelopment activity, new growth and the beautification of the downtown..
Inglis attributes much of this success to the community who has worked alongside of Council to help make this goal a reality.
Today’s retirement party provides Inglis with a chance to thank the communityfor their support, and an opportunity for the public to come out and wish him well in retirement.
