SOUTH DUNDAS – The following is a statement from South Dundas Mayor Evonne Delegarde on Monday, April 16, 2018 on the mayor’s intention to seek re-election in the October municipal election:

Today, I am pleased to announce my candidacy for re-election as Mayor of South Dundas in

the municipal election. I will officially file my paper in late May, when I return from time with my sons and husband Ron in Calgary.

For the past nine years, I have had the honour and privilege of serving the Municipality; the last four as your Mayor. I believe we have made progress and addressed some tough issues that have allowed us to move forward to become a better municipality and offer better customer service to ratepayers.

I wish to continue to represent the community that I love and am passionate about. I enjoy attending community events and meeting residents, receiving feedback, and working to resolve issues and concerns in the best interests if the Municipality. The next four years will be a great opportunity to build on some key steps taken during this term of Council. Recently South Dundas won the Provincial Economic Development Award for the student technology partnership with Ross Video and the Upper Canada School Board; and I feel there is more that can happen.
