Cobourg election results 2018

A A

Voters in Cobourg will have one less decision to make after John Henderson was acclaimed the town’s next mayor.

Henderson, the current deputy mayor, was the only person who submitted nomination papers for the town’s top spot. He will replace Mayor Gil Brocanier, who in July announced he was retiring after a 23-year career in municipal politics. That includes his two terms as a town councillor starting in 1985, followed by deputy mayor in 2006. He served two terms as mayor beginning in 2010.
