Employee testimonials

By Russell Horne, Supervisor of Energy and Asset Management.

“Every day brings a new challenge and a new opportunity to do something great. I am thankful to be working in an industry that thrives off innovation and new ideas. I have the chance to significantly impact my community, and my work directly reduces City operating costs and carbon footprint. I go home every day knowing that I make a difference in the world.” 

By Paul Legacey, Technology Associate.

“Energetic, empowering and awesome are the three words I’d use to describe my job. I am thankful to be with the City and knowing we are working towards the same goal – to provide the best services we can, with the ability to add our own touch.”

The City of Kingston acknowledges that we are on the traditional homeland of the Anishinaabe, Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat, and thanks these nations for their care and stewardship over this shared land.

Today, the City is committed to working with Indigenous peoples and all residents to pursue a united path of reconciliation.
