Byelection for Spaniard's Bay
The Town of Spaniard’s Bay is looking to fill a vacancy on its council following the resignation of Calvin Noseworthy.
Council recently scheduled a byelection for Nov. 2, with the deadline for nominations on Oct. 12.
The vacancy was created following Noseworthy’s resignation in August.
“ He went to work in Alberta, felt he couldn’t fulfill his duties, so he decided to step down,” said Mayor John Drover.
“ He was a good councillor, but his work took him away from the town. I respect him that he figured he couldn’t do justice to the job the people elected him for.”
This was Noseworthy’s first term on council, having won a seat in the 2009 election.
Other members of council include depty mayor Tony Menchions, and councillors Eric Jewer, Brenda Seymour, Wayne Smith, and Sheri Collins.
Drover encouraged younger citizens to step forward and put their names on the ballot. He said there are many exciting developments on the horizon, and suggested that the time has never been better to serve on council and help shape the future.
“ We are a growing community, and young people are the future,” he stated.
Nominations will be accepted from 8 a. m. to 8 p. m. at the council office on Oct. 12.
