LONG SAULT – An Ingleside woman – an entrenched volunteer and activist to save South Stormont schools – is taking a run for South Stormont council.

Jennifer MacIsaac announced today (June 25) she will be seeking election in the municipality on Oct. 22.

“Having been raised in South Stormont, I am keenly aware of how fortunate we are to live in such a wonderful community,” MacIsaac said, noting it’s the fastest growing municipality in SD&G.

“I want to help find the best path for our community’s future,” she stated. “South Stormont’s future looks bright; however, we must work hard to defend our assets and find the innovative solutions that are the right fit for our community.”

In addition to her work with the annual firefighter challenge in Ingleside, MacIsaac was also outspoken on the Upper Canada District School Board’s Accommodation Review Committee, as the community looked to save Rothwell-Osnabruck Secondary School and Longue Sault Public School.

As a councillor, MacIsaac believes listening will be key. “I hope to have the opportunity to contribute in a positive way to a team that will work towards increasing communication and transparency and engage our residents to make South Stormont an even better place in which to grow-up, raise a family and retire.”

MacIsaac works with the Seaway International Bridge Corporation as a community relations coordinator.

She lives in Ingleside with her husband, Paul. They have two sons – 19-year-old Alex and 16-year-old Ethan.
