Terrace welcomes diverse new City Council at swearing in ceremony

Fresh faces joined familiar ones as Terrace City Council ushered in a new era last night.

City Hall played host to the swearing in of the rendition of Council which will serve the community for the next four years.

Two first time councillors, Evan Ramsay and Jessica McCallum-Miller, will bring an injection of youth and diversity during what promises to be an eventful four years.

They will be joined by returning councillors Sean Bujtas, Lynne Christiansen, James Cordeiro, and Brian Downie.

Mayor Carol LeClerc was quick to point out the ranging diversity of a council that features four women and three men, an experience range spanning three generations, and, for the first time, Indigenous representation in McCallum-Miller.

The Mayor, who will begin her second term at the head of the table, also noted the challenges facing council in what will be an eventful four years, before closing out the ceremony.

This version of council will meet for their first meeting next Tuesday.
