If elected, lifelong Cayuga resident John Metcalfe says will be looking for high ethical standards from council and high professional standards from staff.

“We need to ensure tax dollars are spent wisely, promoting business and growth while maintaining our past,” he says. “I will encourage public input, and most important, listen to the needs of the people.”

Retired after 35 years with the Provincial government, Metcalfe has been heavily involved in his community over the past decades.

As past president of the Cayuga Kinsmen Club (1988), he presided over many projects that the Kinsmen club were participating in at the time. The Pavilion and washrooms at river front, enhancements to the Cayuga ball park as well as the preservation of the park from housing development.

He was also a member of the Cayuga Volunteer firefighters for 26 years and sought from council a display area for the antique pumper at the new hall.

Metcalfe coached minor sports for 35 years, and was Co-chairman of the new arena project in Cayuga “Think Rink”. Most recently he was an owner representative for Libro Credit Union, Cayuga Branch.
