WINCHESTER — Once again, he hopes North Dundas voters make “Boyce their choice” — but this time for mayor of the township.
Current Deputy Mayor Gerry Boyce filed his nomination papers this morning at municipal headquarters, making good on his previously stated intention.
The South Mountain-area resident let the region know seven months ago of his goal to replace the retiring Eric Duncan with an impromptu announcement at a public function in Winchester — Duncan’s annual mayor’s breakfast. (The current mayor has one more such breakfast to go this fall before his successor is sworn in, following the Oct. 22 election.)
The only member of the current council successfully tested in an election four years ago — the others were acclaimed — Boyce faces off against Councillor Tony Fraser, who officially launched his mayoral campaign to a large crowd at the Chesterville Legion last month.
The Boyce camp says they similarly plan a campaign launch — 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3, at the Lions Hall in Winchester.
