First Meeting of Toronto City Council: Mayor David Miller announces committee chairs
Mayor David Miller today set out his agenda for the new term of City Council in his address to Councillors and invited guests in the Council Chamber of Toronto City Hall.

“I am looking forward to this term of Council,” said Mayor Miller. “We have a chance to make real, lasting changes that benefit all Torontonians. Our new governance structure and the new powers we have under the City of Toronto Act give this Council a chance to better control its own destiny, and I think we must seize this opportunity.”

Mayor Miller also announced the appointment of chairs to the City’s standing committees.

“These seven committee chairs will play an important role in delivering on the priorities Torontonians voted for in the last election. I look forward to harnessing their experience and working and consulting with them on their respective portfolios,” said Mayor Miller.

The membership of standing committees, as well as the City’s agencies, boards and commissions will be voted on tomorrow by City Council when it reconvenes at 2 p.m. City Council will also elect its Speaker and Deputy Speaker tomorrow, and Community Councils will elect their chairs. The chairs of standing committees are as follows.

- Joe Mihevc - Community Development and Recreation
- Kyle Rae - Economic Development
- Gloria Lindsay Luby - General Government
- Howard Moscoe - Licensing and Standards
- Paula Fletcher - Parks and Environment
- Brian Ashton - Planning and Growth Management
