North Sydney councillor acclaimed as new CBRM deputy mayor

District 2 Councillor Earlene MacMullin smiles after being sworn-in by Justice Robin Gogan. The second-term CBRM councillor missed out on the group swearing-in of four years ago as her election (MacMullin defeated Lloyd Wilkie by four votes) result was not confirmed until after the official ceremony.

SYDNEY, N.S. —

Coun. Earlene MacMullin will serve as the Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s deputy mayor for at least the next year.

The second-term councillor was acclaimed as the deputy to Mayor Amanda McDougall during the new municipal council’s first order of business at its inaugural meeting Tuesday night.

MacMullin, who represents District 2 (North Sydney and area), was nominated by District 12 Coun. Lorne Green. There were no other nominations.

The deputy mayor can hold the position for no more than two consecutive one-year terms. The post, which comes with a $5,000 honorarium, was last held by Ivan Doncaster.
