There’s a new deputy mayor in New Tecumseth. Donna Jebb was appointed by council during a special meeting held yesterday.
Simcoe.com reports that the former Ward 5 councillor won the appointment in a 5-4 vote over Ward 6 councillor Richard Norcross.
The position had been vacant since the former deputy mayor, Jamie Smith, died in August. During her speech, Jebb said she wanted to help get the former deputy mayor’s “goals and ideals finalized.”
