Some new blood on Spa­niard’s Bay coun­cil

The Compass - - NEWS - BY BILL BOW­MAN

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.
