South Glengarry councillor Trevor Bougie will be seeking reelection this fall, looking to retain the seat he’s held since 2010.
“It has been an exciting eight years representing the community while working with our neighbours and upper levels of government to support local initiatives and improvements to benefit the residents of South Glengarry,” Mr. Bougie recently told The News. “It has been a very rewarding experience.”
Mr. Bougie, 33, is a Summerstown native who now resides in Lancaster with his wife, Laura. A teacher at Immaculate Conception Catholic School in Cornwall, he is a Char-Lan District High School alum who graduated from Laurentian University in 2009 with a BA in education following the completion of a four-year honours degree in sports and physical education.
In 2010, Mr. Bougie ran on a campaign platform focusing on improving community standards/services, and the promotion and development of the local economy.
Those remain part of his 2018 platform.
“I value and understand the importance of local people and local businesses,” said Mr. Bougie, whose parents, Kevin and Anne, owned and operated Bougie’s Mini Mart in Summerstown Station for over 25 years.
“The number one reason I’m running again is I want to have a positive impact in the township and I want it to continue to be a great place to work and live for my family and everyone else.”
