SHAWVILLE June 10, 2018
Former Shawville Councillor Bill McCleary will get the chance to sit on the municipal council again after winning a by-election on June 10.
McCleary received 307 of the 520 votes cast. Aileen Sheppard received 102 votes and Sherwin Greer received 111 votes.
The 520 voters represented just over 40 per cent of the 1,285 eligible voters.
McCleary’s 307 votes represent nearly 60 per cent of the vote, which he called “an excellent mandate.”
McCleary sat on council for one term before losing in a close mayoral race to current Shawville Mayor Sandra Murray.
