The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

It turns out that a third try was a charm for Tony Do­minix, who earned a seat on the Spa­niard’s Bay mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil with a vic­tory in a by­elec­tion held on Tues­day, Nov. 2.

Do­minix gar­nered 231 of the 598 votes cast in the elec­tion.

Un­suc­cess­ful can­di­dates in­cluded Mary J. Mesh (171), Mose An­thony (161) and Chris Bar­rett (35).

Re­turn­ing of­fi­cer and town clerk/man­ager Tony Ryan said 31.4 per cent of el­i­gi­ble vot­ers cast bal­lots, which was lower than the roughly 41 per cent who voted in the last by­elec­tion in 2007.

Do­minix has al­ready stepped in with both feet, and was sched­uled to be sworn in dur­ing coun­cil’s reg­u­lar meet­ing on Mon­day, Nov. 8.

Do­minix is the owner/op­er­a­tor of a small en­gine re­pair com­pany, and had pre­vi­ously ran for coun­cil on two other oc­ca­sions. He is 49 years-of-age.

A by­elec­tion be­came nec­es­sary fol­low­ing the res­ig­na­tion of for­mer councillor Calvin Nose­wor­thy.

Other mem­bers of coun­cil in­clude Mayor John Drover, deputy mayor Tony Men­chions, and coun­cil­lors Eric Jewer, Brenda Sey­mour, Wayne Smith, and Sheri Collins.
