Uxbridge councilors have unanimously voted to join the municipalities of Brock and Scugog in passing a motion requesting that the Durham District School Board reinstate a lost trustee for north Durham. Mayor Gerri Lynn O'Connor expressed frustration over the district's recent decision to reduce the number of trustees from two to one, saying that the three northern municipalities are three times larger than the south size-wise. She also claimed that the board did not have the decency to inform them of the change in advance. Under the new setup, Whitby and Oshawa will hold six of the eleven trustee positions on the board after the next municipal election.
