MORRISBURG – A retired P&G employee with no previous political experience will be leading the Municipality of South Dundas over the next term.

Voters chose Jason Broad with 1,596 votes to be mayor, beating current Deputy Mayor Kirsten Gardener by 436 votes (1,160). Former councillor Bill Ewing was third with 1,093.

Broad is a retired Proctor & Gamble worker and told the Morrisburg Leader, other than casually, he hasn’t really followed municipal politics. But he told the paper that his leadership and coaching experience would be an asset and that he was in touch with the community.

Another former councillor is returning as deputy mayor as Marc St. Pierre was elected with 2,040 votes. Councillor Donald Lewis was second with 1,112 votes and Tammy Thom with 681.

Three new faces are on council: Cole Veinotte (2,219), Tom Smyth (2,027) and Danielle Ward (1,851).
