Fort McPherson Mayor and Hamlet Council take office in March

The official results from last week’s Hamlet election in Fort McPherson are in.

8 out of 10 candidates for council were elected.

Joining Mayor Elizabeth Vittrekwa on council are:
Shaylene Allen, James Andre, Marion Koe, Robert Greenland, Ruby McDonald, Ashtyn McLeod, Dwayne Noseworthy, and Dennis Wright.

They will be sworn-in, in March.

According to the certificate of results, the voter turnout last Monday was low at only 47 per cent.

Only six ballots were reported as spoiled, from the 257 cast.

The election was re-scheduled from December after two candidates were listed as in-eligible to run.
