BLANDFORD-BLENHEIM - A 66-year-old family man from Wolverton is running for Council.
Daryl Barnes has lived in Blandford-Blenheim for 60 years and is now retired after working for the township's public works department for 25 years.
Barnes still loves to help the community though, waking up before dawn to patrol the roads so can alert the township if plows or anything else is needed. He's been doing early morning road patrol in Blandford-Blenheim for five years now.
Barnes felt it was time to run for Council because he knows the area and the people, has the time, and wants to help the community he's called home for so long even more.
"I'd just like to make sure everyone gets treated fairly. I'd also like the township to be all one. Not someone gets something here, someone gets something there."
Barnes also said he's pleased with the direction Blandford-Blenheim has been moving in, and he'd like to keep moving forward, keep improving parks and recreation and keep everyone safe.
The municipal election is scheduled for October 24.
