FREDERICTON (GNB) – Richard (Dick) Isabelle has been appointed supervisor for the rural community of Campobello Island. The appointment under the province’s Control of Municipalities Act was initiated when the council of Campobello Island lost quorum in May 2020.

Isabelle will be responsible for the administration of the rural community ensuring the continuation of day-to-day operations. He takes on the role normally exercised by council. He will remain in place until the council seats are filled by an election or byelection, the newly elected members take the oath of office and the rural community is no longer subject to Part V of the Control of Municipalities Act.

Isabelle had a lengthy career in the military and public service. He spent several years as an assistant deputy minister for the provincial government and more recently was the chief administrative officer for the Town of Oromocto.
