United Counties of Prescott-Russell (UCPR) chief of staff and communications manager Justin Bromberg will join the board of the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO).

“I am truly honoured to have been nominated to this position and I look forward to representing Prescott and Russell at the AMO board and bringing my perspective to the table. It will absolutely be a learning experience and hopefully one that creates positive change. Beyond that, I’m sincerely touched by all of the support I’ve had from the entire community since my appointment was announced – it truly means everything,” says Bromberg.

It has been several years since the UCPR has had a representative on the AMO board. Bromberg will be one of six members of what is called the “County Caucus” and he says he is looking forward to bringing a local perspective to the work done by AMO.

UCPR CAO Stéphane Parisien said he is proud that Bromberg was invited by AMO to be on the board.

Counties council and the Eastern Ontario Wardens Caucus said yes right away, Parisien said, adding, “It is no secret that he is well-versed on everything that is happening at the county level and beyond and he is invaluable to us. He has made his mark and is able to understand needs and present them in such a way that people listen to him.”
