A list of Gananoque Mayors.

Why a page that lists the Mayors of Gananoque? Simple answer. I looked for the information online and found not one spot with even most of the information in one spot. I asked at the library and at Town Hall, no one was aware of a list of Mayors.

This is still a work in progress. Please feel free to let me know if you have information I should add! Thanks go out to: John Nalon, Mr Jackson, Tony, Mike for already helping to keep me set straight on the details!
