Caddell running for Deputy Mayor
NORTH GLENGARRY, Ontario – Brian Caddell is running for Deputy Mayor in North Glengarry.
Caddell, a former geography teacher at Glengarry District High School in Alexandria has served the Township as Councillor for Lochiel Ward for the past four years.
“I think as Deputy Mayor you are closer to what comes to the table at council,” Caddell explained. “You’re going to have a say in what is important that goes to council.”
Caddell feels that within the past four years, there have been a lot of improvements to communities in North Glengarry.
“There are a lot of improvements that have been done through the Community Improvement Project,” Caddell said. “We have had several bridges repaired in Lochiel.”
On marijuana, Caddell said that he wanted to restrict private vendors in the township.
“I have no desire to have marijuana sales outlets in our community,” he said.
Instead, Caddell said he would like to focus on support for seniors.
“We have the opportunity for a senior care hub in our community,” he said. “We could have 400 seniors living right next to our hospital.”
Other issues that Caddell would like to pursue if elected Deputy Mayor would be better internet and cell phone coverage for the township.
“I’m running to help the community,” Caddell said. “To me, I want to see the best for North Glengarry.”
