It has been my honour to represent the residents of the Town of Mono for 27 years as public school trustee, councillor and Mayor” she wrote in her letter of resignation. 

I wish Council & future Councils best wishes in their deliberations in the work that they continue to do on behalf of residents in Mono. My time spent with Mono residents has been enlightening & engaging” she went on to say.

Council has called a virtual special meeting on September 3rd at 1 p.m. to discuss filling the vacancy left by Laura’s resignation.
