Can Marc Coombs make it four terms in a row as mayor of Cramahe Township?

Coombs is seeking re-election of the seat he has held since 2007, following a decade serving as a councillor. He also served as Northumberland County Warden in 2015.

He’ll be up against retired journalist Mandy Martin. She has more than 45 years of experience in business and volunteering including serving with the Colborne Legion. She has been campaigning on preparing the township for residential growth and “thinking on a broader scale.”
