Combination of elections and acclamations in Grenville and other rural Argenteuil municipalities

In the village of Grenville, there will be a municipal election on November 7 for three positions out of seven.  

Incumbent mayor Pierre Thauvette is seeking a complete, four-year term. Thauvette was acclaimed to the position in March 2019 after serving as interim mayor since November 2018 when former mayor Luc Grondin died. Thauvette is being challenged for the role of mayor by Walter Berniquez, a longtime resident of the village who has a record of community involvement. 

Two candidates are running for Seat 1 councillor. Incumbent André Lemay is hoping to return to the role, but is being challenged by Lynne-Anne Kennedy. 

For Seat 2 on council, incumbent André Woodbury is running for re-election. Jessica Généreux-Carrière, a dance teacher and municipal recreation employee, is challenging Woodbury for the position. 

Seat 3 Councillor Louis-André Desjardins, Seat 4 Councillor Peter Dopelhamer, Seat 5 Councillor Roger Lalonde, and Seat 6 Council Jocelyne Louis-Seize have each been re-elected by acclamation to Grenville village council. 

Harrington 

No matter who wins on November 7, the Township of Harrington will have a new mayor. Incumbent mayor Jacques Parent is not seeking re-election. The three candidates hoping to replace him are incumbent Seat 4 Councillor Gabrielle Parr, Pierre Richard, and Keith Robson. 

For Seat 1 Councillor, incumbent Chantal Scapino has been re-elected by acclamation. Three candidates are running for Seat 2. They are incumbent Peter Burkhardt, Julie James, and Martin McNicholl. Incumbent Sarah Lacasse Dwyer is seeking re-election for Seat 3 but is being challenged by Daniel St-Onge. For Seat 4, incumbent Robert Dewar has been returned by acclamation, and so has Richard Francoeur for Seat 5.  

Two candidates are running for council Seat 6 in Harrington. Arthur Morrison is challenging incumbent Gerry Clark. 

Gore 

In Gore, incumbent mayor Scott Pearce is running for another term and candidates who are part of his Scott Pearce Team are running—or returning in each seat. 

Pearce is being challenged by Georges Lapointe. For Council Seat 1, Scott Pearce Team candidate Daniel Leduc and Stephane Moisan are the candidates. Sakina Khan of the Scott Pearce Team has been acclaimed to Seat 2. Incumbent Alain Giroux has been acclaimed to Seat 3 and Shirley Roy has been acclaimed to Seat 4. Both are members of the Scott Pearce Team.  

Three candidates are running for Seat 5 in Gore. They are Daniel Charbonneau, Christian Fauconnier, and incumbent Anik Korosec of the Scott Pearce Team. 

Wentworth 

The entire township council has been re-elected by acclamation in Wentworth, meaning residents there will not vote on November 7. Mayor Jason Morrison and councillors Philippe Cyr, Bill Gauley, Allan Page, Pierre Demers, Jay Brothers, and Gilles Ouellette are all returning. All are part of the W.I.L.D. Wentworth party. 

Mille Isles 

Just one position is up for election in Mille-Isles. Incumbent mayor Howard Sauve has been acclaimed. Yvon Arnold and Manon Loiselle are running for Council Seat 1. Incumbents Francis LégerDiane Bélair, Cassandre Lescarbeau, Julie Léveillée, and Dawn Charles have all been acclaimed.
