The former Mayor of Welland and current Niagara College staffer made his announcement as he filed his nomination papers at the Region’s office.

In a news release, Goulbourne said he enjoyed serving in the past as mayor and was motivated to seek election to the Region for a number of reasons.

“I believe the role of government is to help communities achieve their full potential,” he said. “As this is the first-time citizens can vote for Regional Chair, this is our opportunity to achieve our shared aspiration to enhance the quality of life here.”

Goulbourne is a life-long resident of the Niagara region and resides in Welland with his wife and three children.
