Looks like labor activist and political hobbyist Ron McDougall will be the mayor of the Lifesaver Village.
If the legalities can be worked out, Mr. McDougall will be everyone's choice on the November ballot to fill out the remaining year of former Gouverneur Mayor Chris Miller's term. Mr. Miller resigned this week, but Mr. McDougall, who is on the village board, had been defacto mayor for some time.
Mr. McDougall is a registered member of the Independence Party, as is the mayor of nearby Watertown.
