Charles Healy
Reeve of Mara, & Warden of Ontario County
Healy, New County Head--Jan. 1967
WHITBY--Reeve Charles Healey, of Mara Township, was elected warden of Ontario County last Tuesday. He defeated Reeve Ross Murison of Pickering Village by one vote on the fifth ballot. It was regarded the closest warden race in the 109-year history of Ontario County. The final ballot saw Mr. Healey poll 22 votes to Mr. Murison's 21. The fourth ballot was an elimination contest between Mr. Murison and Reeve George Brooks of Whitby. Each polled 13 votes in the third ballot to Mr. Healey's 17 votes. Mr. Brooks drew the highest number of votes in the first ballot with 13, while Mr. Murison and Mr. Healey had 12 apiece. Reeve John Cancey, of Brock Township, received six votes in the first ballot, then announced he would drop out of the race. The second ballot saw Mr. Healey take the lead with 16 votes, Mr. Murison, 14, and Mr. Brooks, 13. Several former wardens were on hand to congratulate the new warden, three of whom are still members of County Council---Reeve Heber Down, of Whitby Township, Reeve J. J. Gibson, of Port Perry, and last year's warden, Wilfred Gould of Uxbridge. Mr. Healey, a father of 11, has been a member of Mara Township council for 10 years, six years as Reeve and two as deputy Reeve. He owns a 330-acre dairy farm and has lived in Ontario County all his life. Reeve Clifford Laycox of Pickering Township said following the election that he may seek the wardenship of the County in 1968 "if I am re-elected next December. Mr. Laycox said this will be his fifth year on County Council.

James Read---Mara Reeve --Ontario County WardenTownship--1930
REEVE READ OF MARA Feb.6, 1930 James Read, the new Warden of the County of Ontario, is a native of Mara, a son of the late George Read, who himself was Reeve of the Township in 1909, 1910, and 1911. The new Warden, who in only forty years of age, and lives on his father’s old farm at Uptergrove, begun his municipal career in 1924, when he entered the Township Council. He was a Councillor again in 1925, was Deputy-Reeve for 1926, 1927, and 1928, and 1930. That he should have attained the Wardenship against so strong an opponent as Reeve Ross, of East Whitby, is a tribute to his capacity and popularity. Mr. Read is said to be the youngest Warden the County of Ontario has ever had.
