Parry Sound-Muskoka Conservative Riding Association members have elected Huntsville Mayor Scott Aitchison to run as the local Conservative candidate in the upcoming federal election this October.
Aitchison was vying for the position against Alan Fraser, Holly Thompson, and Meghan Shannon.
(See earlier Doppler story, Four candidates are vying for the Conservative Party nomination in Parry-Sound Muskoka.)
Aitchison has indicated in the past that if he gets the local Conservative riding nomination, he would take a leave of absence as Huntsville Mayor to run in the October federal election. If Aitchison is successful, he will be stepping down as Mayor of Huntsville.
Party faithful gathered in Bracebridge today to vote for their candidate and elected Aitchison out of three other candidates. Aitchison won on the third ballot.
