As a representative of the North Shore, Ms. Cordato sits in the Caucus of Metropolitan Municipalities of the Union of Municipalities of Quebec (UMQ) as of the 1st of April, together with the Mayor of Repentigny, Chantal Deschamps, as well as the mayors of Saint-Eustache and Mascouche, Pierre Charron and Guillaume Tremblay respectively.
“It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome this new mandate. The North Crown Caucus shows parity with two mayors and two mayoresses. A few days before International Women’s Day, this simple fact already makes me very proud. I would like to take this opportunity to underline the work accomplished by my counterpart from Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines, Mr. Guy Charbonneau, who will end his mandate in a few weeks and whom I will succeed,” said Ms. Cordato.
