PELHAM – Pelham Mayor Dave Augustyn this morning announced his candidacy for Regional Chair.
On Twitter this morning, Mayor Augustyn posted:
“Today, I’m announcing that, with the encouragement of so many, I am honored to be running to be your Regional Chair of the Niagara Region.”
The rest of the announcement can be read on Twitter.
The announcement puts to an end some say weeks, some say months, of second guessing about what the mayor would be doing in the 2018 municipal election campaign.
Already in the race for the Region’s top job are: John Ringo Beam; Damian Goulbourne, a former Welland mayor; and Alan Caslin, the current Regional Chair.
