Graydon Smith, a Progressive Conservative, will unofficially represent Parry Sound-Muskoka in Queen's Park, despite the fact that the race was closer than he had anticipated.

The former Bracebridge mayor came up to the podium shortly after walking into Kirrie Glen Golf Club in Muskoka Lakes, with his wife Melissa, and told the crowd that his victory was simply incredible.

Smith took just over 45% or 20,216 votes while the Green’s Matt Richter took 40.7% or 18,102 votes.

In third place came NDP candidate Erin Horvath with 3,391 votes.

Green Party candidate Matt Richter congratulated Graydon Smith for his win in one the closest races Muskoka has seen in some time.
