LONG SAULT – After 14 years on council, Richard Waldroff is taking a run to be deputy mayor of South Stormont.

Waldroff announced his candidacy today (Tuesday) “with great pleasure and enthusiasm”.

At this point, the seat is vacant because Tammy Hart announced last week she is running for mayor.

Waldroff’s focus for the campaign is keeping South Stormont on a path of growth and financial stability, which includes working with senior governments on a sewage upgrade for Ingleside.

He wants a funding formula “that will keep the costs low for the residents in the service area.”

Paving rural roads and a waterfront committee are also on Waldroff’s agenda ahead of the Oct. 22, 2018 municipal election.

He is a two term councillor with South Stormont and was previously an Osnabruck Township councillor for six years.

Outside of municipal issues, he is heavily involved in volunteering as well as minor and junior hockey.
