Vaughan City Council is the lower-tier municipal governing body for the city of Vaughan, Ontario. It is a part of the upper-tier Regional Municipality of York.[1] Members of the council are elected in three categories: wards councillors, citywide councillors, and a mayor. The wards have remained consistent since the 2010 election.

Council positions

Mayor

Local and regional councillor

Also known as simply regional councillors, anyone filling this position not only serves the people's interest on the Vaughan City Council, they are also responsible for representing the city at the York Regional Council.[2] The regional councillor who receives the most votes in an election is also made the deputy mayor, whose role is to represent the mayor in their absence.[3] For the extra work they do, the deputy mayor receives a 10% higher salary compared to a councillor.[4]

Notes

  1. ^ Di Biase named mayor on the death of Jackson. Rosati promoted to regional councillor's position. By-election elects Jackson's daughter as ward councillor.
  2. ^ Kadis resigned after elected to federal parliament. Shefman won a by-election for the position.
  3. ^ Di Biase resigned in May, 2017 due to sexual assault complaints. Singh appointed regional councillor by council vote; Ferri named deputy mayor based on previous election

Controversy

Following the November 2006 election, former mayor Michael Di Biase appealed the results of the elections citing possible errors in the ballot counting machines. The results were reviewed following a decision in his favour in Ontario Superior Court, concluding that the original result, the election of Jackson as mayor, was the correct one.[8]
