What a turn of events for Ward 5 on election night.
Voters wanted change in the Simcoe area this election, unseating councillors Doug Brunton and Peter Black in one swoop, replacing them with Ian Rabbitts and Ryan Taylor.
Taylor was over the moon excited when Ward 5 results came in first after the 8 p.m. cut of on Monday night where he watched his name jump from 3rd to 2nd to claim a seat at Town Hall.
Taylor has always advocated for an all Norfolk approach, and that won’t change in December.
Rabbitts, on the other hand, had a comfortable start to the night, leading the race by a large margin
He is excited to work with Taylor and the other councillors to get things done.
Rabbitts brought in an impressive 3007 votes from the community with Taylor bringing in 1616.
Doug Brunton came in a close third with 1542 votes followed by Peter Black with 1227.
Rounding out the pack was Doreen Oates with 960 and Rick Dixon with 733.
