Local businessman Alex Smardenka has thrown his hat into the ring to become the next candidate for the Liberal Party in Simcoe County with the full support of his wife Sandy. The Smardenkas own the Boston Pizza franchises in both Collingwood and Wasaga Beach as well as the Swiss Chalet franchise in Wasaga Beach.
Smardenka and his wife, along with their three sons, Tino, Phil and Chris have been long time weekend residents in the Town of the Blue Mountains
enjoying this region for over 20 years with all children being involved in local ski programs.
Alex, 51 married his high school sweetheart 26 years ago and moved to the region full time 5 years ago to open their first franchise.
Both Alex and Sandy are very active in both Simcoe and Grey County supporting many non-profit and charitable organizations as well as many local sports organizations. In 2009 and 2010 Boston Pizza was received Business of the Year at the Collingwood Chamber of Commerce annual Business Excellence Awards.
Alex was inspired by his wife Sandy during her race for Wasaga Beach Deputy Mayor and enjoyed every step of the process and said he met a lot of new friends along the way.
