A full slate in Cupids

Seven named to town coun­cil

The Compass - - MUNICIPAL ELECTION 2013 - BY NICHOLAS MERCER nmercer@cbm­com­pass.ca

The Town of Cupids will have a full coun­cil for the next four years.

Nom­i­na­tions for the next round of mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions closed on Sept. 3 with Cupids re­ceiv­ing ex­actly seven can­di­dates.

This means those seven will be ac­claimed and com­prise the next town coun­cil in the com­mu­nity.

The group will fea­ture four of the five cur­rent mem­bers of coun­cil, along with three new mem­bers.

Re­turn­ing for an­other term are Deputy Mayor Harold Ak­er­man and coun­cil­lors Chris­tine Burry, Kevin Con­nolly and Dou­glas Furey.

The new faces around the ta­ble are Dar­rin Ak­er­man, Henry Hur­ley and Thomas Power.

Mayor Ross Dawe is the only mem­ber not re­turn­ing.

Dawe an­nounced his re­tire­ment two weeks prior to nom­i­na­tion day.

The com­mu­nity has been get­ting by with just five mem­bers on coun­cil since a cou­ple of coun­cil­lors re­signed from their po­si­tions early in 2013.

Next step for the new coun­cil will be to des­ig­nate a new mayor and deputy mayor.

That is ex­pected to be done at the Sept. 10 reg­u­lar coun­cil meet­ing at the Cupids Town Hall.
