Prince Edward County election results 2018

A A

Prince Edward County will have a new mayor as Robert Quaiff won’t be seeking re-election after a 17-year run in municipal politics.

Quaiff announced in June he would not be running after a failed bid as a provincial Liberal candidate. Quaiff was first elected as a councillor in 2000 and was elected mayor in 2014.

That opens the door for three candidates — two of them current ward councillors. Ward 9 Coun. Steve Ferguson and Ward 4 Coun. Dianne O’Brien have tossed their names into the race along with Picton mechanic/business owner Richard Whiten.
