Adam Hannafin, Deputy Reeve

My primary reason to run for council was to help the community.  I have enjoyed meeting many new people over the last 4 years and I am looking forward to the next 4 years as Deputy Reeve. I will do my best to represent the Township and the people who live within it.

I grew up in this area and my family originates from Tyendinaga. I love it here, so naturally I married someone local, Kristen Hannafin (nee Whalen). We have 4 beautiful children, all in school. I have worked in Belleville as a Software Designer for the last 16 years and for the last 2 as a business owner.

I am on the Rec Committee and the Emergency Response Group as well as other committees like Canada Day and Family Day.

 Feel free to give me a call with negative and/or positive feedback or any ideas that you have, that would help improve our community.

Wayne Chadwick, Councillor

 I have lived in the township for my whole life with the exception of eight years of school and work. In 1974, my family moved to a dairy farm. A couple of years after a partnership was formed with my brother and I and now I am semi-retired as the next generation takes over.

 I am married to Sylvia a retired teacher from Tyendinaga Public School. We have three daughters and three grand daughters.
 I was previously on Council from 2000 to 2003 and it was a learning experience. It continues to be a learning experience at this time as the people and the variety of  challenges continues to interest me.
I sit on the board for L&A Insurance in Napanee and enjoy gardening, curling and travel.  We are also active members of Empey Hill United Church.

Don McFarlane, Councillor

My wife Lori and I moved back to Tyendinaga Township 17 years ago to live and raise our family. We both grew up in Tyendinaga Township and wanted our kids to have the same experience growing up in a rural community with family and friends.

I ran for Council to help maintain the quality of life that is offered in Tyendinaga Township through all the activities that Municipal Government provides, and to carry out the important responsibilities that are entrusted to us.
