“I am excited to join the AMO Board where in this role I will have the opportunity to champion and advance issues that matter most to residents of Brantford, including lobbying for more input and local control over Cannabis retail outlet locations and expanded provincial programming and funding for affordable housing and implementation of our community drug strategy.”

Additionally, Mayor Davis will be a voice for improved administration of PTSD claims by WSIB including more effective treatment and Return to Work programs, as well as allowing for greater municipal input regarding changes to Planning and Development processes.
