The full interview with bonus material:
Cobourg Mayor Lucas Cleveland and CAO Tracy Vaughan recently returned from a trip to India. The mayor participated in a panel at the U20 conference. It is a gathering of mayors from around the world. They set priorities about issues at the municipal level and pass them on to the G20 global leaders for action. It is pretty prestigious since only three mayors are chosen from across Canada.
For some, there is a fundamental question. What benefit does this trip have for residents in Cobourg and Northumberland County?
In this interview, Cleveland will answer many other questions about the trip, including the cost and who pays. (As a bonus, he will also explain the cost of several courses he has recently taken as well.) The mayor will make his case for initiatives to raise the international profile of the town.
