I was pleased to attend a welcome reception ushering in the new council of the Town of Hampstead this evening.
Mayor William Steinberg introduced the six councillors in order of their seat number, highlighting two new members: Karen Zajdman in Seat 1 and Warren Budning in Seat 5.
Returning to council are Jack Edery (Seat 2), Leon Elfassy (3), Michael Goldwax (4), and Harvey Shaeffer (6).
Cote Saint-Luc Mayor Anthony Housefather along with myself and Councillors Ruth Kovac, Allan J. Levine and Dida Berku were in attendance to greet and congratulate our neighbouring municipality.
We look forward to many fruitful initiatives and good relations together with our neighbours. (Fixing the needlessly confusing no left turn signs on Fleet would be a good start. Sorry, I couldn’t help myself). We already cooperate in different areas such as recreation and snow dumping. Other possibilities lie ahead.
Meanwhile we congratulate the new council and wish you much success.
