I first met Fred Best on my front lawn in during the 1997 Municipal Election campaign. He was running for Mayor – again - against an up-and-comer municipal politician by the name of Frazer Russell. Fred had the energy of a wild horse back then as he ambled from house to house meeting the residents with a passion and vigor that a mayor needs. He’s a consummate politician and someone I admire for his dedication to Clarenville – not just since 1997 but since he entered Council in 1970’s. He has been in those chambers ever since, 36 years serving as Mayor of Clarenville.
