Some new blood on Spaniard’s Bay council
Tony Menchions topped the poll in Spaniard’s Bay last week with 680 votes.
Menchions was one of three incumbent councillors returned for another term on the town council. Eric Jewer with 642 votes and Calvin Noseworthy with 525 were also re-elected.
They will be joined by three newcomers: Sheri Collins, 545; Wayne J. Smith, 544, and Brenda Seymour, 437.
Mose Anthony was the only incumbent councillor who was unsuccessful in his bid for re-election. Anthony received 360 votes. Four other candidates, all newcomers, were also unsuccessful in their bids for council seats. They were Tony Dominix with 419 votes; Mary Mesh, 366; Derrick Butt, 297 and Chris Barrett, 264.
Veteran Mayor John Drover was acclaimed mayor earlier this month when nobody came forward to challenge him for his chain of office at the close of nominations.
Some 1,149 (56 per cent) of Spaniard’s Bay’s 2,053 eligible voters cast ballots on Sept. 29.
