MORRISBURG – With a little over a month until the nomination deadline for the 2018 municipal election, South Dundas will get its first candidate for mayor.

Last night, sitting South Dundas councillor Marc St. Pierre told The Leader that he will seek election as mayor in the upcoming election.

“This position comes with a high degree of commitment, a high degree of community responsibility and a degree of leadership that is second to none in leading the Municipality of South Dundas through the next term of council – all of which I am ready to undertake,” said St. Pierre.

He is in the process of finalizing the necessary nomination documents to file by the end of the week.

Current South Dundas mayor Evonne Delegarde released a statement April 16th saying that she will seek re-election as mayor. To date, she has not filed nomination papers.

They are councillor Bill Ewing who filed for the position of deputy mayor on May 1st and Kirsten Gardner, who also filed for the position of deputy mayor. She filed her papers June 15th.
