November 26, 2014   ·   0 Comments

Both Essa mayor Terry Dowdall and New Tecumseth mayor Rick Milne are considering a run for the Simcoe County warden’s position next month.
Current deputy warden Harry Hughes will not be running again and recently decided not to run for warden.
“It would be good to have someone from the southern part of the county as either warden or deputy warden,” said Dowdall on the weekend.
Tay mayor Scott Warnock has announced that he will be running for the deputy warden’s position.
There has not been a warden or deputy warden from the southern part of Simcoe County since 2005 when Dennis Roughley of Bradford West Gwillimbury was elected to the position. He served for one year.
Wasaga Beach mayor Cal Patterson as served as warden for the past five years but was defeated for mayor in this fall’s election.
Basil Clarke, new elected mayor of Ramara, will be running for warden. Gerry Marshall, mayor of Pentanguishene, would not confirm rumours that he will also be making a run for the position.
