October 22nd was Election Day in Ontario. After three months of engaging and insightful campaigning, Nicole Beatty was elected to Cobourg Council. Nicole shared the following message on her campaign’s Facebook page after receiving the good news:
This is me receiving the election results: elated, relieved, excited, grateful … proud. My good friend literally having my back. I was surrounded by my family and friends last night – those that have inspired and supported me. Then, I got to be surrounded by community – those that voted for me. Thank you for believing in me, Cobourg. We’re going to do some remarkable things together.
Congratulations to my colleagues. I’m looking forward to serving and collaborating with you. There’s some incredible talent coming to the table. Well done to you all.
To my fellow candidates, your energy and enthusiasm for our people and places is to be admired and applauded. I have endless respect for your ambitions and hope we can continue to engage in that enthusiasm over the next four years. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know you during the campaign.
Cobourg, let’s do this! When can I start? People-first priorities for the win.
