Ward One Councillor Dies
Tuesday, April 3, 2007
Mayor Karen Farbridge has extended her sympathies to Bailey’s family. “Councillor Bailey served her Ward constituents with passion, though her commitment to Guelph extended beyond Ward boundaries,” she explained in a press release on the city of Guelph website.
“She was tireless in her efforts to make Guelph the very best city in which to live, and she displayed an unmistakable pride in her community. Her dedication was evident in her service on the Board of St. Joseph’s Hospital, Guelph Police Service, MacDonald Stewart Art Centre, the Eastview Public Liaison Committee, and Guelph Junction Railway. On behalf of Councillor Bailey’s colleagues on City Council and City of Guelph employees, I extend our deepest sympathy to Laura’s family. She will be remembered for her devotion to her community, as a respected colleague, and a friend,” she went on to say.
The city council has not decided what to do about the vacant post, although they are contemplating a bi-election. A final decision will be made at the April 16th council meeting.
