Jack Graham

With today’s Equity comes news that Jack Graham, the long-time mayor of Bristol (a rural municipality just east of here), died of cancer on Saturday at Shawville hospital; he was 65. I met Jack (and his wife and his son) during my brief journalistic career, and always found him affable, if a bit gruff, and absolutely dedicated to his community — he had a reputation for getting things done for Bristol, let me tell you, from new buildings to highway paving.
