Oro-Medonte Councillor Scott Macpherson has passed away.
The Ward 2 representative died Wednesday, following a prolonged illness, according to a statement from the Township of Oro Medonte.
Macpherson was elected to his second term as councillor last year, and also served as the Vice-Chairman of the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority.
“As a former executive member with the Toronto Region Conservation Authority and the Sauble Valley-North Grey Conservation Authority, Councillor Macpherson brought a keen awareness and understanding of the environment to his role as a board member for both LSRCA and the Lake Simcoe Conservation Foundation,” said Mike Walters, LSRCA’s Chief Administrative Officer. “As an advocate of the work that the Conservation Authority does, Vice Chair Macpherson was always well prepared to participate in discussion and tough decisions. His passing is a true loss for the Conservation Authority and I know the same will be felt by all who knew him.”
Councillor Scott Macpherson was 71-years-old.
