November 23, 2022 - The Association of Manitoba Municipalities (AMM) concluded its 24th Annual Fall Convention today, where Reeve Kam Blight from the RM of Portage la Prairie was formally acclaimed as President.
"Representing Manitoba’s 137 municipalities is a great responsibility and I do not take it lightly,” stated President Blight. “I am truly honoured to lead this strong organization with the support of municipal officials from across the province. I look forward to further strengthening our existing partnerships and forging new ones over the next two years.”
RM of Wallace-Woodworth Reeve Clayton Canart let his name stand for the office of Vice President, along with three others, but this year Councillor Kathy Valentino from the City of Thompson and Reeve Brad Saluk from the RM of Brokenhead were elected as Vice-President to round out the new AMM Executive team.
"Both Kathy and Brad are passionate and dedicated municipal leaders," added President Blight. "We are excited to get to work and serve all AMM members, while advocating for new resources and policy changes to support municipalities throughout Manitoba."
