City by-election to be held in December

A municipal by-election to fill the City of Hamilton common councillor position left vacant by the resignation of Troy Symonds will be held in December.

Mr Symonds, who was elected last May, tendered his resignation earlier this month.

According to a notice on page 30 of today's edition of The Royal Gazette, an extraordinary municipal election will be held in the city on December 9. Those who live in the municipality and wish to vote in the election must be registered by 5pm on October 31.

Registrations can be completed at the Parliamentary Registry Office on Wesley Street, or online at www.elections.gov.bm.

Mr Symonds told the Bermuda Sun he quit after officials voted to pay themselves for attending meetings.

He was quoted as saying: “The political climate has made it impossible. There are a number of agendas going on and the Corporation hasn't made all the right decisions to address them.”
