Coun. John Paul Jackson is running against incumbent Mayor Joe Baptista, who served as mayor of Leeds and the Thousand Islands for one term. Jackson is currently being sued by CAO Greg Borduas for allegedly defaming him in two interviews with Global Kingston. The allegations made against Borduas were deemed to be “unfounded and malicious” by a third party investigator hired by the township.
