Elec­tion post­poned

The Packet (Clarenville) - - FRONT PAGE -

“I want to be a voice for my com­mu­nity,” said Green.

Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs says a sec­ond nom­i­na­tion day must be set.

The Town of Sun­ny­side says it is wait­ing to hear from Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs as to when that sec­ond nom­i­na­tion date will be.

Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs told The Packet that in this sit­u­a­tion, an elec­tion would not pro­ceed on Sept. 26.

Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs also said if the fol­low­ing elec­tion fails to pro­duce a quo­rum, the min­is­ter may also ap­point ad­di­tional coun­cil­lors.

“I don’t know why peo­ple wouldn’t want to be in­volved and have some say,” said Snook.

As of Fri­day morn­ing, South­ern Har­bor, Arnold’s Cove, El­lis­ton, Trin­ity, and Clarenville, have all elected by ac­cla­ma­tion.

“I don’t know if this will mean a fur­ther em­pha­sis on re­gion­al­iza­tion,” won­dered Snook.
