ST. AN­THONY, NL – New and re­turn­ing mem­bers of St. An­thony town coun­cil made it of­fi­cial Monday evening, Oct. 2.

While long-serv­ing mayor Ernest Simms and Ralph Hed­der­son were departing from their roles, the team bid them farewell with plenty of laughs and part­ing ad­vice.

Simms re­minded the group of ef­forts and achieve­ments the coun­cil is con­tin­u­ing to strive for, and the best ways to keep pro­fes­sional and per­sonal mat­ters sep­a­rate.

Simms also said this was not nec­es­sar­ily the end of his po­lit­i­cal ca­reer, though he felt it was time to step down from this po­si­tion.

Be­fore the meet­ing ended, newly ap­pointed mayor Des­mond McDon­ald en­cour­aged coun­cil about the im­por­tance of work­ing as a team.

Former Mayor Ernest Simms and former coun­cil­lor Ralph Hed­der­son show off their plaques as they pass the torches of coun­cil to new mem­bers.
