Cornwall ON – Who the h*** is Nicole Spahich??? That’s the question asked to me most during this Cornwall Ontario municipal election and so far not too much information has been uncovered.
Ms Spahich who surprised many by announcing her candidacy has swept over our city like a warm summer breeze, and has registered as much as 10% on some local polls for mayor.
