Owen Sound Mayoral candidate staying in race despite tragedy
A local mayoral candidate says she's staying in the race despite a recent tragic collision that's impacted her family.
Nancy Lee Rosamond is one of three candidates vying for the mayor's position in Owen Sound.
She tells Dock News in an email, she will stay in the race despite the fact that she remains by the bedside of her life partner Daniel Wardell who was critically injured August 20th when his motorcycle left Scenic Caves Road in Blue Mountains and hit the ditch.
As we reported then, he was airlifted to Sunnybrook hospital in Toronto where he remains in the critical care unit.
Rosamond says you won't see her at your front door but she is committed to running.
"This decision was not easy but is who I am; once I commit to something, I stand my ground and fight. Daniel is also this way and it’s what he would want me to do. I would like to let the people of Owen Sound know that I will be running a green campaign with no flyers, and minimum signage. I will be handing out business-sized cards instead. I regret that I’m not being able to knock on doors, but right now it is a critical time for Daniel and residents will be able to contact me via Facebook Nancy-Lee Rosamond for Mayor of Owen Sound in the meantime.
