SOUTH DUNDAS – The Municipality of South Dundas is pleased to welcome Shawna O’Neill to the team as Communications Coordinator.

O’Neill worked as a local journalist for several years prior to joining the Municipality, covering topics across Cornwall, SDG, and Akwesasne.

“We are super excited to fill another one of our roles with Shawna. Her experience in her previous roles will serve Council and our community well,” said Mayor Jason Broad.
