HALDIMAND—Following a divisive campaign, in which outgoing mayor Ken Hewitt was often in the crosshairs of online public backlash to a proposed large-scale development in the Nanticoke area, Haldimand’s three-term mayor reflected on the election and his lengthy political career locally.
“We’re disappointed with the result, but on the other side of it, I feel like a weight’s been lifted off our shoulders. I have some time now to look at other opportunities and spend some more time with my family and friends,” said Hewitt on his election loss.
