Charles Armstrong enters Russell Township mayoral race
Charles Armstrong will challenge incumbent Mayor Pierre Leroux for the head seat at the Russell Township council in this fall’s municipal election.
“I’m going for the top job,” said Armstrong during a June 11 interview. “I’m absolutely certain I can do a better job.”
Armstrong is a retired member of the Canadian Armed Forces, a former member of the Royal Canadian Engineers, who has lived with his family in Russell Township since 1991. For the past six years he has been a regular attendee to the visitor’s gallery at township council meetings and also sat on the recreation and environmental advisory committees for several years.
