TRURO - Raymond Tynes has been given a vote of confidence by his peers.
The Ward 1 councillor was unanimously elected to deputy mayor Monday. Greg MacArthur, who has held the position for the past two years, did not re-offer and no other councillors' names were put forward for the position.
MacArthur nominated Tynes to be deputy mayor, saying he has integrity and is a strong and wise council member.
"I want to thank the other councillors for having confidence in me," Tynes said. "To the citizens of Truro, that will not stop me from asking the questions that need to be asked."
The change will take affect on Jan. 1.
The election was held in public after questions were raised a year ago when the election was done in private and announced at the public session. That resulted in a letter from Service Nova Scotia and Municipal Relations suggesting the town seek a legal opinion.

    Good news for you Raymond.As for you asking the questions that need to be asked, go for it, but I watch yesterday on cable and I think MacArthur was tiring to give you some advice that you are the Deputy and not the Mayor so act as a Deputy Mayor who helps his Mayor not there to try and up stage him. Good luck
