Terry Dowdall

Meet The Candidate

An experienced and trusted community member who is proud to call Simcoe-Grey home!

Terry Dowdall has had 18 years of municipal experience, serving the Township of Essa, most recently as Mayor.  He served as a Simcoe County councillor since 2003, and was elected in 2014 and again in 2016 as the County’s Deputy Warden.  He finished his municipal career serving as the Acting Warden of Simcoe County, when he won the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) nomination in March 2018, for Simcoe-Grey. Additionally, he has served three terms on the board of directors for the Federation of Canadian Municipalities.  The Federation of Canadian Municipalities (FCM) has been the national voice of municipal governments since 1901.  Its board is comprised of elected municipal officials   from various sized communities across Canada.  FCM carries the municipal message to the federal government.  

A champion of the community and keen on building relationships across sectors

Terry has forged strong partnerships with representatives from the public and private sectors, in order to effectively advance key inter-municipal initiatives, including infrastructure and development projects, area transportation systems, policing models, housing strategies, and budgetary and funding issues.  He was also instrumental in orchestrating a pilot partnership with the Township of Essa, the Simcoe County District School Board, and the Nottawasaga OPP, to develop a model whereby shared space would enable the construction of new facilities in the community, all under one roof, using different sources of funding.  This initiative resulted in significant cost savings to the tax payers.
