Previously, Doyle served as Deputy Warden for Frontenac County, a position that will be filled by Ron Higgins, Mayor of North Frontenac, for the 2022 year. According to Frontenac County, Doyle studied at both Carleton and York Universities, before embarking on a long career with Xerox Canada, followed by six years working in information technology for CIBC. Doyle began serving on Frontenac Islands Township Council in 2006, and was elected Mayor of that township in 2010.

The role at the head of the Council is not unfamiliar to Doyle, as he previously filled the Warden position in 2015. He currently represents Frontenac County on the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington (KFL&A) Public Health Board, where he serves as Chair of the Board, and on the Food Policy Council of KFL&A.

“I’m looking forward to working with Council and the many Frontenac County partners, stakeholders, and constituents in the year ahead,” Warden Doyle said in a statement. “Thank you to Councillors Higgs and Smith for putting my name forward, and to the rest of my fellow Councillors for giving me the opportunity to serve once again as Warden of Frontenac County.”

According to a release from Frontenac County, Doyle took time at the meeting to outline the priorities for Frontenac County in the year ahead, which include “ensuring the safety of residents and staff during the pandemic, final implementation of the communal services project, implementation of the four-hours-of-care-per-resident per day goal at Fairmount Home, continued support for Frontenac Paramedics in their work despite the difficulties posed by the pandemic, accessible and reliable broadband and cellular connectivity across Frontenac, and more.”

“Our role as Council is to set the tone for leadership, stewardship, and respect,” Warden Doyle said in his address. “As colleagues who have been entrusted with making decisions on behalf of Frontenac County, we do not have to always agree but need to listen to each other’s opinions in carrying out these responsibilities. I will promote teamwork. We are all in this together to support taxpayers in Kingston and the Frontenacs. I look forward to working with all of you in 2022 and wish all the best of the season.”
