HAMPDEN An election wasn’t needed for Hampden, as Jamie Goodyear has been acclimated as mayor for the White Bay town.
Along with him, Willis Hamlyn will serve as Deputy Mayor and Ross Pynn will be a councillor. Former mayor Jerry Mercer said he has a place at the council table as well, but may step down in the coming days for personal reasons.
Council was acclimated two weeks ago as no one else stepped forward to take up a seat. Issues for Hampden in the next term include a boat launch and attracting new business to the area.
