Carol Leclerc to be next mayor of Terrace

Four of the eight main Terrace polls have reported in

It now looks as if former city councillor Carol Leclerc is to be the next mayor of Terrace.

With four of the eight main polls at the Terrace Sportsplex counting room reporting in, unofficial results have Leclerc in front with 647 votes to 446 votes for current city councillor Bruce Bidgood.

Two advance polls, plus special ballot places at health care facilities and mail in ballots result in another 294 votes for Leclerc and 161 for Bidgood.

This makes the unofficial total at 941 for Leclerc and 607 for Bidgood.

Speaking tonight at Mumford’s Beerhouse and Grill where she and supporters have gathered, said she was very happy.

“I had no idea, absolutely no idea,” said Leclerc when asked if she had predicted the outcome.
