Kingston city councillor Kevin George appointed to the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO) Board of Directors

February 2, 2015 -

Kingston city councillor Kevin George is the newest member of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario Board of Directors.

"I am honoured to continue to represent Kingston on this important municipal board," said councillor George. "AMO has a strong relationship with the province on advocating for municipal priorities and I look forward to advancing our municipal issues."

AMO represents Ontario's 444 municipalities to support and enhance strong and effective municipal government in Ontario. AMO promotes the value of municipal government as a vital and essential component of Ontario and Canada's political system.

Kingston's city council nominated George at its meeting on January 6 to represent the city on this provincial/municipal board. Kingston has benefited from representation on this board under former councillor Bill Glover and, most recently, former Mayor Mark Gerretsen. Councillor George will sit on AMO's large urban caucus and his first AMO board meeting is on March 27.
