Porter elected new mayor of Doaktown

The village of Doaktown has a new mayor.

Jeff Porter was elected last night in a by-election, after two-term mayor Bev Gaston resigned in October for health reasons.

Porter beat out former mayor Charles Stewart by taking 263 of 373 votes.

Porter is a local business owner who had previously served as a member of the village council.

The by-election was one of 21 that took place in communities across the province yesterday.
