Councillor Gary Palmer
TOWNSHIP OF JAMES (ELK LAKE)
Councillor, Pam Cormier
I’ve lived and worked in Elk Lake since 1984. I’m very proud of our small vibrant community. I enjoy being part of our many functions we have here, as a volunteer and participant. It is always nice to see so many different people having fun.
I have served two terms as a Councillor. It has been exciting to be part of a team working together to make our community better and stronger, and I would very much like to continue this for another term.

MEET YOUR COUNCILLORS
Hi I am Janet MacDowall. I think most people here in Elk Lake know me as I have been on Council several terms since I moved here over 30 years ago. My husband and I have 2 children who are both grounded here in the North. I am a registered Physiotherapist, working in New Liskeard. Because I work in health care I believe that I have good listening and speaking skills. I am able to communicate well my thoughts and ideas.
I believe that over the past terms I have been on Council I have been part of a very productive Council, keeping all residents of Elk Lake in mind during discussions and decision making. I believe that our residents feel comfortable approaching me with their ideas and concerns and I have dealt with them appropriately.
Over the past years I have served as the Council representative on the Library Board and the Temiskaming Municipal Association as well as Chair of the Civic Holiday Committee here in Elk lake. I also serve on many committees as part of my position at the hospital, most dealing with seniors living in the community.
