Warden Bonnie Cark was sworn in on December 1 as Warden of Peterborough County for a two-year term. Bonnie is also Deputy Mayor of Otonabee South Monaghan.
Warden Clark's family has a history of farming in the County dating back to1903. Today, Millar Farms is owned by Bonnie and her brother John who produce eggs, roasting chickens, beef cattle, wheat, soybean, hay and pumpkins. In her inaugural greeting, Warden Clark directly addressed agriculture:
"Our farmers and farming families will continue to be the backbone of our economy and communities for decades to come and beyond. As Warden, I pledge to support our agriculture industry and the people that make it flourish in Peterborough County."
The new Warden continues to be a valued member of the Peterborough Agricultural Roundtable.
As head of county council, Wardens hold a number of responsibilities under the Municipal Act, including chairing county council meetings, sitting on various county committees, acting as a public spokesperson for county council and working alongside other wardens through the Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus.
