First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Residents of the Town of St George chose Nyon Dowling to fill a vacant councillors' seat last night.

He took 192, or almost 92 per cent, of the 209 overall votes. Mr Dowling was elected over Alfonso Harris, who earned 17 votes.

A government spokeswoman confirmed: “An extraordinary municipal election was held at Penno's Wharf cruise ship terminal in St George's to return the seat of Municipal Residents' Councillor to the Corporation of St George. At the end of polls, Nyon Dowling was declared the winner.”

The election was open only to residents of the municipality and came because the sixth councillor's seat was left vacant after an election last month.

Election results were also posted on the Parliamentary Registrar's website at elections.gov.bm

Landslide winner: Nyon Dowling
Alfonso Harris
