Jack Contin – Midland mayor

Work at Georgian Bay Islands National Park brought my wife Judy, our daughter Caitlyn and me to Midland 28 years ago — We have never once regretted that move.

Caitlyn is now married to Geoff and they have a beautiful son, Jack. Grandchildren must have been one of the motivators for Midland’s motto, Persequi qualitatem vitea, meaning “in pursuit of quality of life.” It’s that quality of life for all I work to preserve.

I graduated from Trent University with bachelor of arts degree in 1986. I have 25 years in the public service including work with Parks Canada, Environment Canada, the Ministry of Aboriginal Affairs and as the executive director of an Indigenous tourism organization.

Last term as a municipal councillor for the Town of Midland, I forged a commitment to represent the community honestly and openly, as a team player. I am proud of the work I have accomplished.   

A mayor is the leader of the government that is closest to the people and must be inclusive, impartial and respectful.

I plan to enhance relationships with neighbouring municipalities, First Nations and other levels of government to foster prosperity for Midland and hold the line on taxes, while delivering quality services.

I am creative, conciliatory, honest, diplomatic and competent; all traits well-suited for taking progressive action for community benefit.

I firmly pledge to listen to all. Your voice will be heard and respected. I will stand bravely for you and demonstrate honesty and integrity in my judgment. I will work to resolve public safety concerns, housing issues, aging infrastructure and the repositioning of Midland Bay Landing, as well as, ensuring that Midland is both senior and youth-friendly.

I will lead on economic development, inform and consult, protect the environment and promote Midland as a place to invest.

I will work for you to leave a legacy for our grandchildren and future generations.
