Cross defends his mayor’s chair in Sidney

Incumbent wins by a secure margin against former councillor

Incumbent Sidney Mayor Larry Cross cruised into office Saturday, receiving more than three times the number of votes as his challenger, former Sidney councillor Jack Barker.

Cross topped the polls in the municipal election, collecting 2,184 votes to Barker’s 704.

Council will have a familiar look to it in the seaside community, with councillors Mervyn Lougher-Goodey, Marilyn Loveless, Steve Price and Kenny Podmore re-elected.

Newcomers to the table are Tim Chad and Melissa Hailey.

The new council will be sworn in at the inaugural meeting on Dec. 5 at 7 p.m.
