Jenkins Wins School Board Nod

There's a new face on the South Shore Regional School Board -- Dr John Jenkins of Lunenburg has been elected the member for District 7.
Jenkins won Saturday's by-election defeating rival Craig Buffet by a 99-vote margin -- the results won't be official until tomorrow after the Returning Officer confirms the tally.
The seat became vacant when former vice-chair Karen Kinley resigned in August after accepting a provincial government job in Halifax.
