Mackenzie says he has a lot of experience in the political process besides being mayor and chairman for the District of Muskoka.

Mackenzie is running against Tim Withey and Scott Aitchison. He is putting out a challenge to his fellow mayoral candidates. Mackenzie says he’s concerned with the visual pollution in town, stemming from the current provincial campaigns and eventually the municipal ones. He’s asking Withey and Aitchison to not put up signs.

Another option would be to at least limit the amount of signs used. Mackenzie was mayor of Huntsville between 2000 and 2006.
