Baker Running For Top Job

Bill Baker has officially entered the race to become the next mayor of Essex.

The Ward 3 representative says he has the skills that Essex needs.

“The style of leadership that’s required right now to move Essex forward in it’s community of communities needs somebody with the acumen and business background and involvement in various sectors to lead us,” says Baker. “And also needs to build consensus with council.”

So far, the race for mayor includes Baker incumbent Ron McDermott, former councillor Ron Rogers and former reporter Andy Comber.
