Maycock plans to run for Warden

November 12, 2014   ·   0 Comments

Warren Maycock, who was returned to office last month as Orangeville’s deputy mayor, announced last Sunday that he will seek a second term as Dufferin County’s warden when County Council holds its inaugural meeting next month.

“After careful consideration and consultation, I have decided to once again run for Warden. With six new members joining County Council I think it is important that the Warden is someone with a proven record of working cooperatively with  others and someone with experience at the helm,” he said.

Mr. Maycock grew up in Grand Valley and is a graduate of Centre Dufferin District High School in Shelburne.  He attained his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Waterloo and his Bachelor of Education from the University of Western Ontario.

A resident of Orangeville since 1987, Mr. Maycock is employed as an elementary school teacher at Princess Margaret Public School in Orangeville.

The deputy mayor is the founder of the Primrose Elites Volleyball Club and has coached many minor hockey, volleyball and soccer teams in the past.  He and his wife Michele have raised their four children in the town of Orangeville.

Having served on Orangeville Council as a councillor from 1997 to 2000 and 2003 to 2006 and as Deputy Mayor since 2006 Mr. Maycock feels he has a wealth of knowledge and experience needed to lead County Council.

“In 2011 it was an honour and a privilege for me to serve as Warden of Dufferin County. During that year County Council accomplished many things. We hired a new CAO and an Administrator for Dufferin Oaks, we acquired the property for Edelbrock  Centre, as well as the property for the Dynes-Grey Apartments, and we completed the County Administration and Court Building to name a few,” he said.

County Council will have many items to deal with.

“Some issues that will require council attention will be the County Official Plan, the County Forest Plan , access to high speed Internet service throughout all of Dufferin and a county-wide  trail network to mention a few,” Mr. Maycock said.

At this point none of the other 12 members of the new County Council have announced  they will try to succeed Melancthon Mayor Bill Hill as warden.
