One half of the council of the Municipality of the County of Inverness is female for the first time in the county’s history.
On Saturday night, three new voices were added to the council when three incumbents went down to defeat.
In this the 2020 municipal elections, Alfred Poirier was acclaimed in District #1 as was Laurie Cranton in District #2.
In District #3 (Inverness area), decade-serving Jim Mustard lost his seat to newcomer Bonny MacIsaac. MacIsaac captured more votes than all the other three running against her.
