SOUTHBRIDGE — To Ronald Proulx, Southbridge needs some "Yankee ingenuity" to address its issues.

"I want to get involved in helping the town move in a positive direction … and bring innovation to Southbridge," he said.

Despite this being his second run for the office, Proulx is probably the least known of the nine candidates for Town Council on the June 30 ballot. He faces incumbents Laurent McDonald and David Livengood, previous candidates George Chenier and Rinaldo Bernardone, and newcomers Stephanie DeMartino, Hector Delgado, Dennis Martinek and Denise Clemence for three seats. The third incumbent, Robert King, bowed out of the race May 29.

"I did pretty good last time — I got 14 percent of the vote with no campaign," he said. He also has never served on a town board, although he said he put his name in for the liquor and zoning boards and dog officer.
