TIGNISH -- Judy Morrissey-Richard is back on Tignish Municipal Council.
Morrissey-Richard, who did not re-offer in last fall’s municipal election, was unopposed in Monday’s byelection called to replace Cassie Gavin. Gavin resigned from council last month after re-locating outside of Tignish.
About 30 residents were in attendance for the byelection, held prior to the monthly meeting.
Following Gavin’s resignation, Council chair Allan McInnis re-assigned her role as council representative on Tignish Initiatives to councilor Ed Gallant.
Council roles for Morrissey-Richard were not assigned during the monthly meeting.
