Matthew Jelley has been re-elected as mayor of the Resort Municipality of Stanley Bridge, Hope River, Bayview, Cavendish and North Rustico, according to results emailed out by the town's CAO.

The email from Brenda MacDonald did not provide vote counts, only the slate of candidates with a column indicating who had been elected.

Jelley has been leading the community for almost a decade, first elected as chair of the rural municipality on P.E.I.'s North Shore in 2014. The title more recently was changed to mayor. He defeated challenger, and councillor, Bill Drost.

Six councillors were also elected Monday night: Lee Brammer, George Clark Dunning, Kay Hryckiw, Linda Lowther Ryan Simpson and Chris Robinson.
