The Council for the Township of Tudor and Cashel is comprised of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor and three Councillors representing the residents and property owners of Tudor and Cashel Township.
The role of Council is to represent the public and to consider the well-being and best interests of the Municipality as a whole, for the long term.
Council is responsible for developing and evaluating policies and programs for the municipality; evaluating the services which the Municipality provides; and ensuring the maintainance of the financial integrity of the municipality.
Councillors are governors, not managers. They have no involvement in day-to-day operations and don't direct staff. They do, however, make decisions at Council meetings that provide direction to staff through the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), who is the manager of the corporation. Council ensures the administrative policies, practices and procedures of the corporation provide for accountability and transparency.
Councillors make decisons as a group in scheduled, public Council meetings. While the Mayor has additional duties under the Municipal Act, provides leadership, and acts as the Chair of Council meetings, he or she has only one of the votes at the Council table.
The Mayor and Deputy Mayor are elected by voters across the entire municipality.
Members of Council are appointed to various committees and boards in Tudor and Cashel Township. The Mayor is Tudor and Cashels' representatives on Hastings County Council and are appointed to committees and boards at that table.
Councillors liaise with community members on a regular basis. Feel free to reach out to your Councillors any time.
Your New Council for the 2018-2022 Term (to be updated in the near future)

As your Mayor, I will ensure the welfare and interests of the municipality as a whole are always considered and to bring to council's attention anything that would promote the welfare or interests of the municipality.

I am a committee member of the North Hastings Inspection Services as well as a member of the local Euchre Committee.
Thirty-three years of being an educator with the Toronto District School Board prepared me for my continuing role in helping people get things done. I continue to be a member of the Ontario College of Teachers. My areas of expertise include human relations, policies and procedures as well as collaboration. I am also currently registered with the Quinte Real Estate Board as a real estate sales representative.

Bob Bridger, Councillor
I have been visiting and occasionally working in the Township of Tudor and Cashel since the early 1980’s. I started as a cottager on beautiful Jordan Lake, spending more and more time here over the years. I finally pulled the plug on living in the city of Toronto in 2013, and moved into the area full time. Since coming here I have been helping people get answers to questions, and things done. Initially on Jordan Lake, and then expanded my horizons to Steenburg Lake where I have a number of friends and family.
In 2018 I decided that I should run for council and expand my efforts to the whole Township.
Thanks to an amazing amount of support of the people I have met over the years, I managed to get elected councilor.
So for the next 4 years I plan on representing the voices of all the taxpayers of Tudor and Cashel.

My wife and I purchased our property in Tudor and Cashel, December of 2011 and used it as our getaway place until we decided to move here permanently in 2013. I very much enjoy the smaller community atmosphere found here in our township.
Some of my background is as follows;

Noreen Reilly, Councillor
I arrived in Tudor and Cashel after an arduous search for a getaway that was both quiet and beautiful.
The more time I spent here, the harder it was to return to the city. When opportunity knocked, 25 years ago, I made it my home.
I have travelled to 12 countries around the world and numerous destinations across Canada and the United States for work and for pleasure. Having exposure to cultural and economic diversity, I can look at issues through different perspectives.
I promise a high level of personal integrity and accountability in how I deliver on the responsiblities I have been trusted with.
