Plenty of choice in Heart’s Con­tent elec­tion

The Compass - - THE COMPASS -

More than half of the cur­rent town coun­cil in Heart’s Con­tent are seek­ing re­elec­tion on Sept. 24. When nom­i­na­tion day closed in the com­mu­nity on Sept. 3, there was a to­tal of 10 names on the bal­lot.

This in­cludes the town’s deputy mayor, Art Cumby, and coun­cil­lors Fred Cumby, Glenda His­cock, Tol­son Ren­dell and Pa­tri­cia Smith.

There are five new peo­ple seek­ing elec­tion.

Mayor Don Blun­don and Coun. Fred Driscoll are not seek­ing re-elec­tion.

Blun­don has been the town’s mayor for the past 36 years, hav­ing served as the top elected of­fi­cial in the com­mu­nity since 1977.

Along with the in­cum­bents, the fol­low­ing also find their names on the bal­lot: Car­son Evely, Brian Fitz­patrick, Joe Masters, Mike Mid­delkoop and Doug Piercey.

Res­i­dents will be vot­ing to fill seven po­si­tions on the Heart’s Con­tent town coun­cil.

Once that has been done, the coun­cil will then se­lected its mayor and deputy mayor.
