Wawa Municipal Council has a couple new members.
Julia Rowe and Pat Tait were officially sworn-in as councillors at the start of Tuesday night's Council meeting, filling two vacant Council seats.
Speaking after she was chosen to be a councillor two weeks ago, Rowe - a Michipicoten High School teacher and former acting vice principal - stated she was "really looking forward to the opportunity to represent the people of Wawa" and work with the other members of Council, emphasizing her ability to listen to people as a key part she brings to her new role.
When he was selected to fill the role two weeks ago, Tait noted he'd been interested in joining council "for a while" and has "ample time" to give it his full attention, as he's now retired after a career which included working as an A-O-D welder, and working at Weyerhaeuser, Wesdome, and Rentech - but he notes his past work experience will help on Council.
The new councillors will serve the remainder of the current term, which ends at the end of November.
