“I enjoyed my first four years on council and I learned a lot. I’m looking forward to learning more in the next four years. I’m happy we’re making progress on the completion of the 101 highway; we have some positive ideas and I think we will see something done in the next four years.”

“This will be my nineteenth year as an elected official. My priority is going to be doctor recruitment. Yes this is a provincial responsibility but we need to work on this. Green energy such as tidal power is important. We will be setting up a windmill at our lagoon in Smith’s Cove. Yes we have no debt but we may have to go into debt to deliver future services needed for the community.”

“I’m proud to represent the people in District 1. I appreciate their support and I’d like to think the residents were satisfied with the work I’ve been doing for them and for the municipality as a whole.

We are one of four communities in Nova Scotia with no debt. I’m proud that we can say that. By the same token, I feel we have delivered the services the residents require.

In the next four years I’d like to see us continue to make inroads with tidal energy with the town and look at opportunities for service sharing with other municipalities.”

Councillor David Tudor celebrates after the swearing in ceremony with a little breakdancing. “That’s how our council ‘rolls’,” tweeted @LindaFraser4 later.

George Manzer only new councillor in the area

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.
