And John Klinck, the current chair of the District of Muskoka makes it three in the running for the top job in Muskoka.

While Klinck has been District Chair since 2010, this is the first time the position will be chosen in a municipal election.  The post has always been appointed by sitting District Councilors.

In a press release Klinck said “We must protect our watershed, our forests and our brilliant night sky, and ensure that the aesthetic nature of our neighbourhoods are not compromised.”

Other priorities involved enhanced funding for both hospitals, the district official plan and resort policy reviews.

Klinck is joined by former District Chair Gord Adams and former Huntsville Mayor Hugh Mackenzie.
