Konc to take over for Wainfleet Mayor if Jeffs hits campaign trail

A Wainfleet alderwoman has been named to take over from the township's mayor, if the mayor decides to take a leave of absence to campaign in June's provincial election.

Betty Konc will also replace April Jeffs on regional council and the NPCA in the event the mayor takes a month off to campaign.

Jeffs is running for the Conservative Party in the riding of Niagara Centre and will challenge NDP incumbant Cindy Forster.
