Linda Gregory has won another four years as warden of the Municipality of the District of Digby.
She was the warden for the last four years and the only one to express interest this time when CAO Linda Fraser asked at the special council meeting Monday night, Nov. 5.

Two councillors however, both Jimmy MacAlpine, deputy warden for the last four years, and Maritza Adams, expressed interest in the deputy job this time.
Fraser gave each councillor a piece of paper and they all wrote down one name, just like on Survivor. Except in this case, the name with the most votes wins. No one leaves.
MacAlpine was returned as deputy.
Judge John Nichols swore in all the councilors for the Municipality of the District of Digby except David Tudor, councilor for District 4—he affirmed his appointment to council.
“It’s either that or be a hypocrite,” said Tudor later.
