November 28 - David Neumann, Brantford: Taking the Long View

When Dave Neumann announced he wasn't seeking re-election in October 2018, it marked a milestone in a rich and varied career in politics. He has served Brantford as alderman, mayor, and city councilor and provincially in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. In addition to teaching at Pauline Johnson Collegiate and Vocational School, he has coordinatred adult education, advocated for literacy, and participated in several committees dedicated to community and heritage development.
