Out­go­ing Mayor Claude El­liott is ex­tremely pleased with the in­ter­est shown in coun­cil this year, es­pe­cially given the dif­fi­culty other com­mu­ni­ties face in re­cruit­ing new mu­nic­i­pal politi­cians.

“To see so many peo­ple of­fer­ing them­selves here in Gan­der shows we have a healthy com­mu­nity and that peo­ple are will­ing give of their time and ex­per­tise to keep Gan­der going — it’s good to see,” he said. “There’s a lot of good peo­ple there and I’m sure Gan­der is going to be in fine hands.”
