Mackenzie Sets Sights on District Chair

Former Huntsville Mayor Hugh Mackenzie has announced that he intends to file nomination papers to run for District Chair.

Mckenzie says he is motivated by the platform of the other candidate Gord Adams who was the Chair from 1994 until 2010. 

Mackenzie says that Adams aims to promote One Muskoka, a single layer of municipal governance that would eliminate Muskoka’s three towns and three townships as corporate entities.

Makenzie opposes that view and says the District is out of control and eliminating local government could make it worse.
