Councillors take oath in Burin
Town thanks out-going council members for work
BURIN, NL – Burin mayor Kevin Lundrigan was sworn in during a regular meeting held Tuesday, Oct. 3.
Lundrigan was re-elected mayor during the municipal elections last month, beating out challenger Shane Foote with 497 votes to 272.
Members returned by acclamation were also sworn in during the meeting. New to the chamber is Marcus Evans, filling the chair left vacant by April Pitcher, who chose not to seek re-election after serving two terms on council.
Lundrigan thanked Pitcher for her service to the Town of Burin and wished her well in the future.
“I’d like to recognize Coun. Pitcher for her dedication to the town over the past eight years,” said the mayor. “It’s been a stellar performance throughout – she was always here to do anything any councillor requested of her, and a lot of times she did things above and beyond what was required as a councillor.”
Council also presented Pitcher with a gift of appreciation on behalf of council and the people of Burin.
During the meeting council also asked for nominations for deputy mayor. Councillor Everett Farwell nominated previous deputy mayor Howard Lundrigan, who was appointed to the position.
