Usually the act of voting seems about as useful as throwing pennies in shopping-mall fountain.
This time our votes made a difference, and we’ve elected a variety of strong-willed, independent, knowledgeable people to Council.
Enough can’t be said about our new Mayor Marcel Harvey. He fought alone for well over a year, spending his own money, and paying the emotional cost of heavy social and legal pressures brought against him by the bullies at City Hall.
We made Democracy work here!
Now it’s time for relaxation and celebration.
Here are the results.
COMMENT FROM DEBBIE ANDERSON
I want to thank everyone who voted. The turnout here in Wentworth was remarkable! There were two VERY tight races with Ron Price beating Jay Brothers by only 1 vote and Normand Champoux taking the win from Jean Lipari by 1 vote.
Many thanks to everyone who voted for me and especially those of you who were out there helping at the polls for hours on end. Thanks Marion Hodge and Roy Nelson!
I promised to work for the community for the next four years and you can count on me to do just that. My number is 450-533-4745 and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org . I am always willing to listen and help if I am able.
Thanks again, Debbie
COMMENT FROM SEAN NOONAN
I would like to thank everyone who put their faith in me, and I will not let you down. A record number of voters came out, and their desire for change rang loud and clear. We will get to work this week on ensuring that Wentworth will again be a place of harmony, and the municipal office a place of cooperation and respect for all.
Thank you again
