The Huntsville mayor, who is on leave the next seven weeks, will be opening his campaign office in Huntsville Monday, Sept. 9, at 11:30 a.m., till 2 p.m.

It’s located at the former train station at 26 Station Road.

He will be there for a ribbon cutting, barbecue.

No word yet from the Greens, NDP and People’s Party about office openings yet.
