Coderre Appoints Frantz Benjamin First Montreal Council President
Frantz Benjamin has been named the first Haitian-American Montréal Municipal Council President.
Benjamin also serves on many other boards and committees including Culture, Heritage, and Sports Commission; Pointe de l'Île School Board Executive Committee; and as Intercultural Montréal Council President.
Benjamin was a loyal ally of ex-mayor Gérald Tremblay and quit the Union Montréal party when they brought corruption charges against Tremblay. When new mayor Coderre took office Benjamin joined Coderre's party.
