Former Ontario mayor LeRoy Cammack has submitted a letter of interest requesting to take over the mayor position for the duration of the existing term, left vacant when Joe Dominick resigned in February. Cammack stated in his letter he had no intention of running for another term after completing this one.
Cammack stated a number of his qualifications in his letter, including eight years as mayor, experience in on City Council and in other leadership positions, honesty and an “agenda” that is simply to do what is best for the city and its citizens.
Choosing a mayor has proven to be a point of contention time and time again for City Council. The council has held many votes over how to proceed with the vacancy, all of which resulted in 3-3 ties between members of the divided council.
