A familiar face is once again serving on Pelham Town Council. James Lane, filling the vacant Ward 1 seat, was officially sworn in at the Dec. 4/2017 meeting of Town Council.

Now his third time sitting on Council, Lane says it is just a matter of getting back into the swing of things as a Councillor.

Given the proximity to the next municipal election and Lane’s extensive experience as a Pelham Councillor, the decision to appoint Lane was the best option; a by-election or application process would have taken weeks or months.

Lane said he’s excited to be a part of Council during a time of exciting projects such as the Pelham Community Centre.

Mayor Dave Augustyn is pleased to welcome back Lane and cites his experience and community-focused vision as a perfect fit to fill the vacant seat.

“As a Council, we depend on one another for fruitful discussion and debate,” said Augustyn. “Having Councillor Lane’s perspective back on Council will better inform our deliberations and ensure representation of Ward 1 residents.”
