Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY - LYNN CURWIN TRURO NEWS

TRURO, N. S. – It means more work but Truro CAO Mike Dolter is en­thu­si­as­tic about be­ing elected to the board of the Cana­dian As­so­ci­a­tion of Mu­nic­i­pal Ad­min­is­tra­tors (CAMA).

“It’s great be­cause you’re elected by your peers from across the coun­try,” he said. “It also gives me the op­por­tu­nity to take things I think are im­por­tant, es­pe­cially for smaller mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, to the board. It’s im­por­tant to make sure our mem­bers have the tools they need to sup­port their coun­cils and res­i­dents.

“It’s a lit­tle more work but I’m look­ing for­ward to it. I’ll spend a few evenings do­ing ex­tra stuff, but it will ben­e­fit com­mu­ni­ties. It’s im­por­tant to be in­volved if you want to im­prove things. I’m very grate­ful for the sup­port of coun­cil on this.”

Dolter was elected dur­ing the CAMA an­nual gen­eral meet­ing on May 28 in Québec City. He now rep­re­sents Nova Sco­tia and Prince Ed­ward Is­land. One per­son ran against him for the po­si­tion.

Jeff Re­naud, in­com­ing CAMA pres­i­dent and CAO for the Town of St. Stephen, N. B., com­mented on Dolter’s ap­point­ment, say­ing, “His ex­pe­ri­ence in the mil­i­tary and with mu­nic­i­pal ad­min­is­tra­tion, es­pe­cially in the field of fi­nance and im­proved fund­ing mod­els for mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties, makes him a valu­able ad­di­tion to our na­tional board.”

Dolter was with the Cana­dian Forces for 21 years, work­ing as a lo­gis­tics fi­nance of­fi­cer in Canada and on peace­keep­ing op­er­a­tions. He was also comptrolle­r at Cana­dian Forces Base Kingston. In 2005 he left the forces and be­came CAO for his home­town of Cor­ner Brook, N. L.

In 2014, he moved to Truro to work as the town’s CAO.

He is cur­rently serv­ing his sec­ond four-year term as vi­cepres­i­dent of the Nova Sco­tia As­so­ci­a­tion of Mu­nic­i­pal Ad­min­is­tra­tors. He is also a direc­tor for the Prop­erty Val­u­a­tion Ser­vice Cor­po­ra­tion of Nova Sco­tia.

The only other seat that be­came open on the board this year was for New Brunswick. Marc Me­lan­son, city man­ager of Dieppe, was elected to that po­si­tion, with no one run­ning against him.
