A town councillor in Carman has officially entered the race this fall.

 Ron Stanger has decided to run for mayor.

Stanger says he chose to run because he would like to see his hometown progress and move forward.

He says one of the most memorable changes he's seen as a councillor has been the Sunny Side development.

Stanger says some of the projects he hopes to take part in as mayor are the 2008 Summer Games and continuing to develop the town.

He has been a councillor for fourteen years.
