SOUTH DUNDAS – On April 16, South Dundas Mayor Evonne Delegarde announced her intention to seek re-election as mayor in the upcoming municipal election. In her press release, Delegarde said she intends to file her papers in late May after returning from family time in Calgary spent with her sons and husband.

Delegarde has served the municipality for nine years and has been mayor for the past four years. “I believe we have made progress and addressed some tough issues that have allowed us to move forward to become a better municipality and offer better customer service to ratepayers,” she said in her release.

Delegarde added that she hopes to build on the progress made so far: “I wish to continue to represent the community that I love and am passionate about. I enjoy attending community events and meeting residents, receiving feedback and working to resolve issues and concerns in the best interests of the municipality. The next four years will be a great opportunity to build on some key steps taken during this term of Council. Recently South Dundas won the Provincial Economic Development Award for the student technology partnership with Ross Video and the Upper Canada School Board; and I feel there is more that can happen.”
