Scarpitti is the current mayor of Markham, Ontario.
in Ontario in 1960 and moved to Markham from Toronto
in 1965. Scarpitti was appointed mayor from 1992
to 1994 following the death of Tony Roman, but
was defeated by a friend of the Planing Mills
owners, Don Cousens in the 1994. Frank subsequently
worked as broadcaster with CFMT in Toronto during
his absence from politics from 1994 to 1997.
The Unionville Planing Mill
was delighted when Frank Scarpitti, came back
into politics and was elected in 2006 as mayor
to replace the retired Don Cousens.
Frank has been a tremendous
booster for Markham and Unionville and was re-elected
in 2010 with a huge approval rating of 85% of
At a recent Mayors Prayer Breakfast,
at the Hilton Suites Conference Center, the mayor
praised the Markham Fire Department and the Police
Force as, the finest, in the GTA. It was great
to see the 900 plus guests applause, and we, of
course, agree with mayor Scarpitti. Although the
Unionville Planing Mill, burned to the ground
in 1983, nothing else in the area was damaged.
We are thankful for the excellent fire department
we have here in Unionville.
