Dalhousie byelection slated for December

Citizens of Dalhousie will vote in December to fill a council seat left vacant by former councillor Mickey Maloney.

The seat was declared vacant by the town's council last month.

Mayor Normand Pelletier says the town would have liked the byelection to be scheduled sooner but that Election NB wanted to settle the upcoming provincial elections first.

The byelection is slated for December 3rd.
