Mayor's Biography

Ann Seamans was re-elected in 2016 for a second term as Mayor of Riverview. Prior to being elected Riverview's first female mayor in 2012, she served as member of Riverview Town Council for 14 years. Ann is known for her accessibility, energy, enthusiasm, and deep commitment to Riverview and its residents. 

Born in Miramichi, Ann moved to Riverview from Saint John in 1976 as part of a family-run venture to open Domac Building Supplies. Taking the most pleasure from the 'people' aspect of her work, Ann switched gears and started a highly successful career as a realtor with Royal LePage Metro in 1993. She retired from the company in 2014. 

Some of the visible achievements during Ann's time on Town Council include the installation of the south-end water tower, lobbying the provincial government for the Gunningsville Bridge, and the adoption of the 20-year Municipal Development Plan.

Ann sits on several external boards and committees including the Southeast Regional Service Commission (SERSC), the SERSC Executive Committee, the SERSC Audit Committee (Chair) and the Economic Leadership Council. 

She is a recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal in honour of her significant contributions to her community and was named a RBC Woman of Distinction. 

Her vision for Riverview is to grow as a vibrant community that we can be proud to call home. 

Ann raised two sons (Mark and Jamie) in Riverview. She and her husband Skip Rudderham enjoy spending time with their combined family of four children and nine grandchildren.
