The winds of change are blowing in Stanstead as Sylvie Boudreau and Jody Stone, both new to the municipal politics scene, go head-to-head for the vacant mayoral seat left behind by long time mayor Philip Dutil.
Dutil sat in the mayor’s seat for 12 years. He decided against running for a fourth term, opting instead to run for a position on the municipal council. Boudreau and Stone have ambitious plans to rejuvenate Stanstead, and make it a family destination for Quebecers.
