​John Fenik is asking Perth residents to hand him a forth consecutive term as mayor.

Fenik has served on Perth Town Council for just over 20 years; he was first elected as councillor in 1997 and then as deputy mayor in 2003. He’s had the top job in the small, historic town, located southwest of Ottawa, since 2006.

In the 2018 election, Fenik has two challengers: two-term councillor Jim Boldt and two-term deputy mayor John Gemmell.

As for the rest, sitting councillors Jim Graff and Ed McPherson are vying for the position of deputy mayor. There are six candidates gunning for five council seats.
