Councillor Terry Whitehead is back on the job after being on sick leave for ten months. In a release, the Ward 14 councillor said “I am pleased to announce that my doctors have cleared me to return to work and I will heed their advice on work/life balance. I look forward to reconnecting and addressing the challenges of our community and the Ward 14 residents. I want to thank my staff for the excellent effort they have put in since my absence. I would also like to thank members of Council and the Mayor for their support during this time. Special thanks goes to Councillor Jackson and Councillor Ferguson for assisting on matters generated from the Ward 14 community. Thank you for your patience, I look forward to talking to you all soon.”
