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.”
