Municipal Election

We are very pleased with the results of the municipal elections for the Limestone District School Board and for the municipality of Kingston. YOUR efforts made a difference.

·       When you took a sign, you took a stand and encouraged others;

·       When you talked up the elections at work, you strengthened democratic principles;

·       When you donated to a candidate, you made their running for a position possible;

·       When you voted, you made your voice heard;

·       When you canvassed for a candidate, you built community.
