The current mayor of Clarendon is running for re-election and he’s hoping his dedication to safe, maintained roads will cruise him back into the office.
John Armstrong isn’t looking to clean out his office yet, especially with all the work he has planned for the municipality.
“The main focus that we have to have constantly is our roads,” said Armstrong. “We’ve got roughly 270 kilometres of road, but farming is the main industry, so we’ve got heavier equipment on the roads all the time. We’re constantly trying to upgrade our roads, to make them suitable for the traffic.”
