The Southern Gazette - - FRONT PAGE - THE SOUTH­ERN GAZETTE BURIN, N.L.

The peo­ple of the town of Burin have spo­ken – Kevin Lun­dri­gan has been re­elected mayor of the Town of Burin.

“I am quite sat­is­fied with the re­sults,” Lun­dri­gan said fol­low­ing the elec­tion Sept. 26.

He added voter turn-out this year was higher than in past elec­tions, with 722 bal­lots cast. Voter turn-out was at 41per cent, com­pared to 32 per cent in 2009’s gen­eral elec­tion.

Lun­dri­gan said he was pleased with the re­sults.

“I wasn’t sur­prised, but quite pleased,” said Lun­dri­gan. “The re­sponse that I had from peo­ple over the last cou­ple of months since this came about was fan­tas­tic. They sup­port what coun­cil has been do­ing in the past, and I guess they were sat­is­fied by the whole team.”

Lun­dri­gan beat out op­po­nent Shane Foote by 272 votes. Foote re­ceived 225 votes while Lun­dri­gan re­ceived 497.

Foote told the South­ern Gazette he sends his con­grat­u­la­tions to Mayor Lun­dri­gan.

“The elec­tion was good,” he said. “The peo­ple of Burin have spo­ken and they’ve elected Kevin mayor and I con­grat­u­late him and hope he does re­ally well.”

Foote thanked those who sup­ported him in the mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion.
