He was also a Streetsville Councillor and Reeve from 1877-1898, and a Warden of Peel County in 1897. A staunch supporter of the Conservative Party, he was a Justice of the Peace and was instrumental in the construction of the Credit Valley Railway that linked Streetsville with rail service in 1879. Jean Graydon married Kirby Burns. The donor, Dorothy Galajda, is the niece of Jean Graydon and Kirby Burns and has donated other Graydon items to the Museums of Mississauga, including two portraits of John and Jane Graydon and accessories worn by Jean's spinster aunts, "the Graydon Girls".
