História biográfica

As a long time resident of Norwich Township, W. Leslie (Les) Dickson operated a 135-acre Holstein Farm and apple orchard north of Burgessville and was at one time a sales representative for the Oxford County Holstein Breeders Association. Interested in local politics, Les was an eight year veteran of the North Norwich Township Council, serving as Deputy Reeve for four years and Reeve for 2 years prior to being elected County Warden in 1973. During his time on County Council, he served on the Finance Committee, Agriculture Committee, Personnel Committee and was a representative on the County Planning Board.
