Santos elected Essex County Warden

A positive sign for Windsor, for a change
Nelson Santos Elected Essex County Warden
Youngest County Mayor Named To Post

The County of Essex has a new warden.

Nelson Santos, Mayor of Kingsville will hold the seat for the next four years.

He wants to strength the county's relationship with the City of Windsor.

Santos says the county's relationship with Windsor is crucial and it's the strongest its been in years, something he plans to build on saying, "we need to work with our partners, it's not about amalgamation, it's about bringing services together."

Santos' only challenger, Gary McNamara, Mayor of Tecumseh was gracious in defeat.

Had McNamara won, I don't think the prospects for cooperation between the City and County would have been very bright. Now that the City and County have finished picking their dance partners, it's time to start dancing.
