WINCHESTER – The races for next month’s municipal election are set.
Yet, in the Township of North Dundas, voters have only one decision to
make. Who will be the municipality’s next deputy-mayor? The choice
comes down to the incumbent, Gerry Boyce, or the newcomer, Theresa
Unchallenged, Mayor Eric Duncan, along with councillors Al Armstrong,
Tony Fraser, and John Thompson reclaim their seats by acclamation.
On the flipside, the situation in Dundas County’s southern region will
see all current Municipality of South Dundas politicians vying to
retain a spot at the council table.
Incumbent Mayor Steven Byvelds is in direct competition with Councillor
Evonne Delegarde for the township’s top spot, while Morrisburg

nine people competing for the three open councillor seats, including
incumbent councillors Jim Graham and Archie Mellan, along with Phil
Blancher, Bill Ewing, Bert Geertsma, Robert “Rowdy” Gillard, Mahlon
Locke, Jim Mills, and Marc St. Pierre.
To the north, in the City of Ottawa’s Osgoode Ward, 11 people are vying
for one council position, currently occupied by retiring Councillor
Doug Thompson. Voters will see the following names on the ballot:
George Darouze, Tom Dawson, Davis Jermacans, Jean Johnston-McKitterick,
Liam Maguire, Bob Masaro, Allen Scantland, Mark Scharfe, Kim Sheldrick,
Paul St. Jean, and George Wright.

Facing no competition, newcomer Jeremy Archer is acclaimed as trustee
for the Upper Canada District School Board’s Dundas County area, while
incumbent trustee Francois Bazinet is acclaimed for the Conseil
Scolaire de District Catholique de l’Est Ontarien seat.
There are three competitors for the position of trustee for the Conseil
des Écoles Publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario, and they include incumbent
Lise Benoit-Leger, and newcomers Jean Bedard and Jules Bourdon.
Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario Dundas and Stormont
County trustee Karen McAllister faces competition from Michael Dunne.
Meanwhile, incumbent Mark Fisher is in competition with Curtis
Bulatovich, Lori Daneliak, Jerrett DeFazio, and Jennifer Jennekens for
a trustee position with the Ottawa Carleton District School Board –
Zone 7, which includes Osgoode Ward, while the area’s Ottawa Catholic
