About Mayor Easton
Sandra Easton was elected as the sixth Mayor and second female Mayor for the Town of Lincoln in October 2014. In her career in civic service, she follows a long line of public servants that have given their career to the Town of Lincoln.
As a retired registered nurse and nurse practitioner by discipline she also fulfilled a 25-year commitment to McMaster University as Assistant Clinical Professor in the Faculty of Health Sciences. Her desire to run again for public office as Mayor following a six-year stretch as Alderman in the mid 1980's was augmented by a Master of Public Administration Degree from Queen's University.
Sandra ran on a platform of social justice and continues to apply a leadership model to both Council and community that puts the residents first in a transformational environment of fairness, equity and direct access to local government. Proactive planning based on constructive decision making and outward looking partnerships with all levels of government and institutions supports her beliefs about the intrinsic value of local Councils to lead and build dynamic, people focused communities.
She is a proponent of executive policy governance through constructive thinking and measuring results and has modelled this philosophical approach in the Town of Lincoln. Sandra sits on the Niagara Peninsula Energy Inc. (NPEI) Board. As a Regional Councillor for the Town of Lincoln she sits on the Corporate Services Committee and Planning & Economic Development Committee. She is also Chair of the Social Housing Alternative Service Delivery Task Force.
She is married to Tony, of 49 years, and is mother to David and Kathy and grandmother to Maxim and Connor.
