Best reaches sil­ver an­niver­sary

The Packet (Clarenville) - - Editorial -

Twenty- five years is a long time to be do­ing any­thing. Just ask Mayor Fred Best.

Best was re­cently hon­ored by the New­found­land and Labrador Fed­er­a­tion of Mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties (NLFM) for his 25 years of ser­vice in mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment. For most of that time, 21 years, he has been with Clarenville. He has been mayor of the town since 1982. The other four years were spent in Wes­leyville. Best was philo­soph­i­cal when asked if he’s en­joyed the last 25 years.

“I’ve had a lot of good times, but a lot of dif­fi­cult ones too as far as mu­nic­i­pal gov­ern­ment is con­cerned be­cause there are prob­lems to which there are no easy so­lu­tions,” Best said.87
