MOUNTAIN – A little more than a month remains before the candidate cut-off date for this fall’s municipal election.

Already, the race for a councillor seat in the Township of North Dundas is proving to be a popular choice.

With three spots available, the latest entrant into that race is Mountain-area farmer Tyler Hoy.

He joins a field that include former Winchester merchant Gary Annable, South Mountain resident Frank Fata, and County Road 3 goat farmer Theresa Bergeron, who ran unsuccessfully for the municipality’s deputy-mayor seat four years ago.

These candidates are expected to be joined by Tim Wasylko, former executive chef at 24 Sussex and co-owner of Winchelsea Events, who told the Winchester Press earlier this year he’ll be running for a councillor seat, and current councillor John Thompson.

Incumbent Councillor Tony Fraser remains the lone mayoral candidate, while Councillor Al Armstrong is the only registered deputy-mayor candidate.

The candidate filing period closes Fri., July 27. Election day is set for Mon., Oct. 22.
