Freeman is particularly pleased with the last four years in office as it brought some large accomplishments for the town and himself, as he chaired the negotiations for the addition of 1500 acres from South-West Oxford.
INGERSOLL- Ingersoll's long time Deputy Mayor will be running again this election.
Fred Freeman has served on council for 19 years, and as deputy mayor for the last 16. He has been very pleased with the direction the town is headed in.
Freeman is particularly pleased with the last four years in office as it brought some large accomplishments for the town and himself, as he chaired the negotiations for the addition of 1500 acres from South-West Oxford. Even more thrilling for Freeman however was an issue much more dear to the people of Ingersoll.
"The number one accomplishment would be working with the entire community to stop the landfill from coming to the outskirts of Ingersoll, that was huge."
The Deputy Mayor also made note of the town's financial situation, saying the town was in fantastic shape. Should he be re-elected he wishes to finish the planned multi-use recreation centre and address affordable housing in a realistic manner.
Freeman has enjoyed serving and being as active possible in the community during his time in office. He wishes to continue going above and beyond.
"I've been committed to our community. When you look at the many past committees and boards that I've been on, most members of council are on two committees, I sit on seven plus any ad-hoc committee that happens to come up; I am usually a part of that."
The municipal election is scheduled for October 24th.
