In a re­sound­ing vic­tory, Barry Manuel was re-elected mayor of Grand Falls-Wind­sor on Sept. 26 with 4,358 votes.

Grand Falls-Wind­sor saw a 61 per cent turnout in vot­ers — a huge in­crease over the last mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion, which saw 47 per cent of vot­ers cast­ing bal­lots.

“Any­time you’re in this po­si­tion it feels good. I’m proud of the cam­paign we ran, I had a great team be­hind me ... to see so many peo­ple come out to the polls, to see things favour my­self at the end of the day — it’s heart­warm­ing to see.

“It re­ally en­er­gizes me to get back to work,” Manuel said in an in­ter­view shortly after the elec­tion re­sults were an­nounced on Rogers TV.

Manuel added he would “like to pick up where the old coun­cil left off.

“I feel we have a lot of mo­men­tum go­ing, a lot of pos­i­tive things go­ing ... I’m look­ing for­ward to the new ideas of the new coun­cil­lors.”

Three in­cum­bents will re­turn to coun­cil cham­bers and three newly elected coun­cil­lors will be­gin their po­lit­i­cal ca­reers on the coun­cil.
