Three Empty Seats on Pugwash Commission
Pugwash will host a village election next month, just one week before the municipal elections happening across the province.
There are three vacancies on the Village Commission. Two have been pending since June when the term for Tracey Mundle and Charley Gould expired.
However, COVID delayed the normal election process when the Minister of Municipal Affairs suspended all village elections in Nova Scotia.
Both Mundle and Gould continued to sit as commissioners while waiting for an election call. However, Mundle has recently moved from Pugwash and tendered her resignation.
That leaves Roger Mundle and Bill Martin, along with Gould in the temporary seat to hold down the fort. As three is the minimum to hold a commission meeting, the decision making weight falls on them.
The third vacancy was created when Kathy Redmond was required to surrender her village seat when she offered to run in District Four of the municipal election in Cumberland.
Redmond, a former councillor for Wentworth, is challenging the incumbent Barbara Palmer in the newly expanded district which takes in Wentworth area along with Malagash and Wallace.
The village set October 10th for the vote. Interested candidates should contact the village clerk for nomination details.
