CAPE ST. GEORGE — Peter Fenwick considered the results from Tuesday night’s election in Cape St. George excellent, with all the incumbent council members returned to town hall, along with one other.
Fenwick, who was serving as mayor, was returned to council, along with Robert Cormier, who held the position of deputy mayor in the last council, and council members Patrick Costard, Gervais Rubia, Tony Young and Maurice Benoit.
The seventh person elected to council was Jasen Benwah, who will be filling in a vacant council seat.
The defeated candidates include: Callista Tallack, Wayne Deaves, Nadine Tallack, Laura Martin, Claude Benoit, Crystal Benoit and Olivera Benoit.
“I compliment everyone who ran in this first full scale election in 12 years,” Fenwick said.
He is now looking forward to another four years with the new council and hopes to carry on with a number of developments that have been taking place in the town, including building a new recreational centre.
Council will be deciding on the mayor and deputy mayor’s position at a future meeting.
