County heading to by-election a week after election

Division 6 Councillor-elect Ronald Shaw has resigned from Sturgeon County Council.

Shaw, who was elected Oct. 18 with 305 votes to Jason Berry’s 241, submitted a letter to Sturgeon County’s Chief Administrative Officer, noting that his decision was for personal reasons and is effective immediately.

The resignation results in Sturgeon County needing to conduct a by-election for Division 6. Council will approve a date for that by-election at an upcoming meeting.

In the interim, Sturgeon County residents and businesses north of Township Road 570 should contact Deputy Mayor Neal Comeau and those south of Township Road 570 should contact Councillor Dan Derouin.

  1. One must agree that they are prepared to serve the entire term if elected as a condition of running in the first place.
    Now I understand that things change and people must resign. What I do not know is why he is resigning.
    I would suggest that more than “for personal reasons” should be offered up to ensure there was not just a change of mind.
    If he merely changed his mind, I believe the county should seek the cost of the byelection from the Shaw campaign.
