Cupids mayor out

The Compass - - NEWS - BY DENISE PIKE

Geral­dine Cur­ran will not be re­turn­ing as mayor of Cupids af­ter last week’s vote in that his­toric Con­cep­tion Bay town.

The in­cum­bent mayor re­ceived 129 votes, not enough to give her a seat on coun­cil.

In­cum­bent coun­cil­lors Norma Bon­nell, 110 votes and John Mug­ford, 77 were also un­suc­cess­ful in their bids for re-elec­tion.

For the next four years the town’s mu­nic­i­pal af­fairs are in the hands of a group made up of three in­cum­bent coun­cil­lors and three new­com­ers.

Some 365 of the 604 el­i­gi­ble vot­ers (60 per cent) cast their bal­lots in the Sept. 29 elec­tion.

In­cum­bent coun­cil­lor Ron­ald Laracy topped the polls with 215 votes fol­lowed by new­comer Harold Akerman with 194. In­cum­bent coun­cil­lors Frank Bishop and Chris­tine Burry re­ceived 167 and 151 re­spec­tively, while new­com­ers Ira But­ler at­tracted 165; Har­vey Pud­dis­ter, 157 and Ross Dawe, 150.

New­com­ers Dou­glas Furey, 146; Dale Linthorne, 122; Clyde Wells, 71 and Frank Wells, 70 were also de­feated.
