Bri­gus coun­cil has five new faces

The Compass - - NEWS -

The Bri­gus Town Coun­cil will have five new faces in their coun­cil cham­bers for the next four years.

Only two mem­bers of the for­mer coun­cil, in­cum­bent mayor By­ron Rod­way, who was elected by ac­cla­ma­tion, and Ralph Trick­ett are back on coun­cil. Trick­ett, the only in­cum­bent coun­cil­lor who sought re-elec­tion, topped the poll with 263 votes.

The new­com­ers are: Pauline Mercer, 259; Faith C. Pike-Roberts, 207; Michael Fowler, 194; Lorne J. Youden, 171 and Greg His­cock, 146. Two other new­com­ers, Roy Clarke and Shears Mercer Jr., 131, were un­suc­cess­ful in their bids for coun­cil seats.

Some 356 (56 per cent) of the town’s 626 el­i­gi­ble vot­ers cast bal­lots in the elec­tion.
