There's a candidate for the councillor's position in the RM of Portage's Ward 7.

Barry McNaughton has decided to run for the seat held by Bill Alford for 27 years. Alford won't be running in the October election.

McNaughton has been active in the community, and feels that's something he could bring to the Council table....

McNaughton feels the biggest issues before the new council will be road maintenance and drainage, but he'll also concentrate on matters in the Oakville vicinity. He's lived in the ward for more than 38 years, and feels he can make some improvements in the community.

Here's a list of RM candidates.
