Regional district voters call for change

Election results in for RDKS, school board — recount ordered for Terrace Rural

In the school board election for Terrace trustees incumbents Margaret Warcup and Art Erasmus have beat out challenger Peter Lambright for the two available seats. In Thornhill, incumbent Sandy Watson has defeated Lorrie Gowen.

In the election for the Regional District of Kitimat Stikine voters chose new directors in all but one area that wasn’t acclaimed. In Thronhill, Area E, Jeff Hammond unseated Ted Ramsey. Dean Paranich won over the incumbent, Linda Pierre in Area B (Hazeltons Rural Areas, Kispiox Valley, Moricetown through Cedarvale). And in Electoral Area A (Nass Valley, Meziadin) Eric Nyce took a strong lead over Harry Nyce.

A close contest of just two votes has prompted a recount for Electoral Area C (rural Terrace). Tallies currently show Bruce Bidgood leading Martin Holzbauer 126 to 124 votes. Chief Elections Officer Cathy Jackson in Terrace is waiting for the arrival of ballots from two voting places and hopes to complete the recount by Tuesday.
