At 11:30 today, City Councillor Bernadette Clement announced she is running for the position of Mayor of Cornwall in the upcoming Municipal Elections happening in October 2018.
“It is time,” she said in front of a large crowd at the RCAFA. “I have worked diligently as a councillor for twelve years. I have worked diligently in this community for 27 years, and I’m ready to run for mayor.”
Two others will join Clement’s name on the ballot: David Murphy, who also has been a long time city councillor, and Nicole Spahich, who ran for mayor in 2010. Mayor O’Shaugnessy has not yet confirmed if he is seeking re-election.
Citizens have until July 26th to submit their paperwork at City Hall.
