A local city councillor has been elected to a fourth straight term on the northern caucus of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario Board. Mike Doody, who represents ward five in Timmins, was elected during the AMO annual conference last week.

Doody says part of being on the board means bringing northern Ontario issues into the light. For example, they have been pushing the promotion of mineral exploration and lumbering businesses in the area. He says that has a world wide appeal, and benefits the province as a whole.

Doody is one of five who sits on the northern caucus. They represent Timmins, North Bay, Sudbury, the Soo, and everything in between. He joins President of FONOM and Mayor of Kapuskasing, Al Spacek, on the board.
