Gloade keeps chief's position in Millbrook election

The 45-year-old was re-elected on Friday with 338 votes. According to Gloade and official election results emailed to the Truro Daily News from returning officer Tricia Fultz, Gloade narrowly defeated Stephen Marshall Sr. (301 votes), followed by John (Jack) Paul (30 votes) and James Howe Sr. (29 votes).

“I feel good to have that behind me and it’s good to get back to work,” Gloade told the Truro Daily News on Saturday morning.

Gloade said some of his priorities include developing the power centre and “pending announcements” as well as “always improving the communication with the community members. There has to be more community engagement.”

Gloade is also pleased to welcome to new women, Natasha Bernard and Linda Maloney, join the band council as successful candidates in the election. They replace outgoing members Lloyd Johnson and Barry Gloade.

“Having the women will improve the dynamic of our council and gives new perspective,” the chief said.

Chief Gloade said the results didn’t come in until about 1 a.m. The other 10 council members were re-elected: Colin Bernard, Bryan Brooks, Alex Cope, Adrian Gloade, Peter Gloade, Vernon Gloade, Gordon Johnson, Ward Markie, Barry Martin Sr. and Chris Nasson.

There were 40 candidates in the election. Turnout was about 57 per cent of the more than 1,260 eligible voters. Voter attendance was down slightly from the last election, which saw more than 60 per cent cast a vote.

The new council will take effect on March 6.
