Mayor Housefather resigns as mayor in order to become Member of Parliament

Anthony Housefather resigned today as mayor of Côte Saint-Luc in anticipation of being sworn in as a Member of Parliament. Here is the process to elect a new mayor in Côte Saint-Luc.

At the November 9 meeting of the city council, the City Clerk of Côte Saint-Luc must officially declare a vacancy on council. Because there is more than one year until the November 2017 municipal elections across Quebec, the City Council cannot simply appoint someone to be mayor – there must be a by-election.

The Returning Officer will select a date for the by-election at a date to be determined. If only one candidate files nomination papers, then she or he will be acclaimed mayor.

In the mean-time, the current Deputy Mayor (sometimes called Acting Mayor or Pro-Mayor), Councillor Glenn J. Nashen, takes on the duties of mayor.

When the by-election date is set, it will be posted at Cheri Bell will be the President of the by-election in the City of Côte Saint-Luc.
