Three want to be warden of Lambton County


There are now three people vying for the top political job in Lambton County.

Brian White is the latest person to declare he wants to be Lambton’s warden. The Sarnia City/County councillor has served three years on county council and has chaired one of two committees which does the business of council.

White is trying to unseat current warden, Lambton Shores Mayor Bill Weber, who has held the position for four years. He also is up against Enniskillen Mayor Kevin Marriott, who is the deputy warden.

The new warden has to secure nine votes from 17 county councillors to become warden. That means there could be more than one ballot to decide the next leader of council.

There are also three people running for the deputy warden’s position; Warwick Mayor Jackie Rombouts, Sarnia City/County Councillor Mike Stark, and Pt. Edward Mayor Bev Hand.

The vote will be held virtually Dec. 2.
