Toller Has Vision For The Pontiac
Newly elected warden full of energy for the job
MRC Pontiac has a new warden and she has already made history. Jane Toller is the first person to be elected warden under a new system for the warden. This year, MRC Pontiac had the warden’s role elected by pubic vote. Until this year, the position had been elected by the county representatives. Toller, who operates several businesses in the region, earned the role by a significant margin, and drew support from all municipalities in the Pontiac.
