Rotary Club of Fonthill in partnership with the Welland Pelham Chamber of Commerce hosted a Meet and Greet for all candidates running for Council,  Regional Council, School Boards and Mayor on Tuesday night at the Fonthill Legion followed by an informative debate with the three Mayoral Candidates. Dr. David Siegel of Brock University moderated the debate with fair and thoughtful questions from the public.  Three questions were provided to the candidates one week prior to debate and included asking what the biggest issue is facing the Municipality, how to restore integrity at the Region and what personal and professional experiences would make them an effective Mayor.  These were followed by eight questions from the floor covering topical municipal issues such AirBNBs, marijuana farms, town debt, downtown revitalization and the Fonthill Bandshell.
We encourage everyone to take advantage of all avenues available to get to know the candidates running for municipal election and equally importantly, get out and vote on Oct 22.
