Connie Lauder Elected Deputy Mayor for Woodstock

This position is a rotating position and council elects a new deputy mayor every year.

WOODSTOCK - Woodstock City council has elected a new deputy Mayor for the rest of the current council term.

This position is a rotating position and council elects a new deputy mayor every year. Yesterday council elected Connie Lauder for the position. She will take over for Mark Schadenberg.

Councillor Schadenberg was grateful for his time in the position.

"I want to thank Trevor Birtch and everyone at City for my time as acting mayor. It has not been a lot of work over the last year thanks to COVID, not a lot of ribbons to cut or babies to kiss during a pandemic. I am looking forward to Connie Lauder having the opportunity. Connie is very busy, she goes to County council when one of the current county councillors can't make it, she is on boards for the Museum, the Library and the Community Grants committee and past chair of the Woodstock Hospital Foundation." 

Councillor Deb Tait noted it was great to see another woman in a leadership position, also recognizes Councillor Talbot as Deputy Warden for Oxford County. 

The Deputy Mayor is responsible for attending events and filling in when the Mayor is unable to do so. They do not get any extra perks or salary for this position.
