Mayor re-election never guaranteed

It would be wise for the new mayor to remember, that while she received 1,412 votes, 10,174 of eligible voters did not vote for her.

Re: Hamilton elected in Colwood,  News, Nov. 23, 2011.

It was interesting to read mayor-elect Carol Hamilton’s comment: “I think Colwood voted for consistency. They want somebody who’s going to be their mayor long term.”

She’s only been elected for a three year term.

It would be wise for the new mayor to remember, that while she received 1,412 votes, 10,174 of eligible voters did not vote for her.
