Ginn seeks another warden term, Fergusson to challenge - Nov. 15, 2018
BY SHAWN LOUGHLIN
Current Huron County Warden Jim Ginn is seeking another two-year term in the county’s top political position.
Ginn will not be unopposed, however, as Bluewater Deputy-Mayor Jim Fergusson has also declared his intention to seek the position.
Both men made their announcements at the Nov. 7 meeting of Huron County Council. There will still be time for newly-elected members to declare their intention to run when council meets again on Wednesday, Dec. 5, the day council will choose its new warden.
Ginn told his fellow councillors that with so many newcomers being elected in last month’s election, he felt that a steady, consistent presence at the head of council would help greatly.
He said the new council will bring “new faces, new ideas and new passions” to the council table, which is a good thing, but that he felt there should be some continuity at the top.
Ginn is currently serving the final weeks of the second-ever two-year term for warden. Morris-Turnberry’s Paul Gowing was the first two-year warden, serving 2015-2016.
