CORNWALL — There will be a race for the mayor’s office in Cornwall.

Marlene Hunt, a councillor in the town for the last two terms, announced on Wednesday she will be runing for mayor during the November 2014 municipal elections.  

“It is an honour to serve the people of Cornwall and I look forward to meeting everyone during the campaign,” said Hunt.

The annoucement comes one day after Corey Frizzell, another Cornwall councillor, announced his intention to seek the mayor’s office. Frizzell will outline his plans during a campaign launch Thursday evening at Cornwall Town Hall.

Hunt said her platform includes support for public transit, which she describes as “sustainable and needed in a growing town.”

Improved transparency, fiscal responsibility, and more environmental initiatives are essential to the town’s future and Hunt said those too will be part of her campaign pitch to Cornwall residents.

“We need more sidewalk infrastructure, trails, bike lanes, park improvements and equally important a public transit system connected to our sister cities and towns.”

    I was actually worried that Mr. Frizzell was going to have no competition in the election and would receive the mayor-ship by default. So glad there is intelligence now in the race. Now I have hopes for the future of my home community

    Good luck Marlene! Long time residents of this town know you have our best interests at heart and not a hidden agenda.

    Couldn't agree with Resident's comments more, Mr. Frizzell has a long history in this town and it's not pretty. Look into his past.

    Good luck Marlene........change is definitely needed in Cornwall and it's good change that is needed! The election of Mr. Frizzell will mean more trouble and more bad management. This is a man that didn't want disability housing and didn't want the Terry Fox Center named after Terry Fox. Who was willing to take the name down in order to get more commercial sponsorship. He is someone that cares about being known, not actually caring about what the Town needs. Best of luck!!
