“This is the last time you’ll see the five of us sitting here,” she noted during the ‘Mayor’s Announcements’ portion of Oct. 9’s meeting. “I’d personally like to thank council for their hard work. All these four people are running again for various positions, as you all know, and I wish them all luck. And, I certainly want to thank all our staff and everybody that’s worked so hard with us and for us for these last four years.”

“I wish the new council lots of good times and successful projects,” St. Jacques said.

She reminded the audience to remember to make sure they vote on Oct. 20.
