Charlottetown Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen has received the Bruce H. Yeo Award.
The Yeo award was established in memory of the Federation of Prince Edward Island Municipalities’ first president, to recognize outstanding contributions to municipal government in P.E.I.
Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee says MacFadyen deserves the recognition.
“He has dedicated 14 years to the city corporation and, as deputy mayor, has gone above and beyond his job description in every way, attending events and activities even when he didn’t have to and putting his heart into everything he does,” said Lee.
“He has touched the lives of many people in our community and we’re very happy that has been recognized with this award.”
MacFadyen is a lifelong resident of Charlottetown and lives with his wife, Cindy, and their son, Jeremy, on Newland Crescent. Stu has three other children: Gordie, Heather and David, and is a grandfather to four.
First elected to Charlottetown City Council in November 2000, he was appointed deputy mayor in 2003 and is now serving his third consecutive term. He attended St. Dunstan’s University, the University of Prince Edward Island, and the University of New Brunswick.
A former teacher and city employee, MacFadyen has been very active in the community. He has served on many boards, has been involved with the coaching of various sports and, in his leisure time, enjoys watching hockey, other sporting activities and attending the many cultural events at the Confederation Centre of the Arts.
