While most of Ayer’s Cliff’s municipal council was acclaimed, there is still one position available heading into the Nov. 7 election.
Two candidates, Caroline Paul and Louise Roux are running for Seat 2 on council, and both hope voters will remember that every seat is important and head to the polls.
As it stands, there are three returning councillors, Patrick Proulx (Seat 1), Peter McHarg (Seat 3), and Michael Crook (Seat 6).
Nancy Vanasse (Seat 4) and France Coulombe (Seat 5) are new on the team, as is Mayor Simon Roy, taking up the reins from outgoing Mayor Vincent Gérin, who did not run for re-election.
The Record spoke with both candidates running for Seat 2 to hear about their vision for the town and what they could bring to the council table.
Caroline Paul is a Townshipper, but relatively new to Ayer’s Cliff. She grew up in Magog, and went to Galt, but only made the move to Ayer’s Cliff in 2014.
“The whole family followed,” Paul said, including her parents and siblings.
