South Glengarry Mayor Ian McLeod had the luck of the draw Tuesday to edge South Dundas Mayor Evonne Delegarde for the post of Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry United Counties Warden.
When fellow members voted, both were tied. A second ballot did not break the stalemate.
Then Mr. McLeod's name was drawn.
He will succeed South Stormont Mayor Jim Bancroft as chair of county council.
