The municipality of Scotstown announced the sudden death of Mayor Iain MacAulay on the night of October 25, 2020 at his home.
MacAulay was elected Mayor of Scotstown on March 8, 2019 by acclamation in a by-election. From July 2010 until his election as Mayor, he served as a city councillor. He was committed to the development of the city and was eager to see some major issues concluded for the future of Scotstown and the quality of life of its citizens. A hard-working Scotstown native, MacAulay began his municipal political career with Scotstown in July 2010. He has been involved in a number of local and regional organizations. “We are very proud to have benefited from this man’s input and expertise. Iain MacAulay was a person who was proud of his origins, of the growing Scottish memory in Scotstown and of the work he has done over the past few years for his municipality,” commented Sylvie Dubé, Deputy Mayor of Scotstown. On behalf of all the citizens, members of council, municipal employees and volunteer firefighters of the local department, Scotstown would like to express their sympathies to his wife, Mrs. Linda Irving, his two sons Jonathan and Kevin, as well as his family and loved ones.
