The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

For­mer Hant’s Har­bour mayor Holly Smith will be re­turn­ing to the coun­cil cham­bers, fol­low­ing the re­sults of the Nov. 23 by­elec­tion.

Holly Smith re­ceived 46 votes com­pared to Ce­cil Soper’s 11 to claim the seat va­cated by for­mer councillor Terry Tuck, who was elected in last year’s mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion.

“I’m pleased to be back,” said Smith, who last served as mayor 10 years ago. She said coun­cil will soon be pre­par­ing its 2011 mu­nic­i­pal bud­get.

The date for the next coun­cil meet­ing had not been set when Smith spoke with The Com­pass on Nov. 24, but she said it will be held within the next two weeks.
