Mayor Fred Jarvis will not run in next election


“I’m fine here until the end of November, until this term is over, but I’m not going to seek another term at the elections this fall,” Jarvis said.

Mayor Jarvis credits the “tremendous relationship” he’s built in the province during his time and says he’s truly enjoyed looking after the town.

Jarvis first became mayor in 1986, 12 years after starting his life in Taylor.

Mayor Jarvis says the encouragement he’s received to stay in office as long as possible has made the decision harder.

“I truly feel this is the election where there are other people to pick up where we left off and not have any drop in momentum,” Jarvis explained.
