Northwestern B.C. school board byelection date set

Byelection made necessary by death of Coast Mountains School District Thornhill trustee

THE Coast Mountains School District has set Jan. 9, 2016 as the date for a byelection to replace longtime Thornhill trustee Gary Turner who passed away suddenly on Oct. 2.

The person will serve the remainder of Turner’s four-year term which began a year ago.

Nominations will open November 24 and close December 4.

Should just one person be nominated, that person will be sworn in at the school board’s December meeting.

To be nominated, a person must be a Canadian citizen, be 18 years of age or older and be a resident of British Columbia for at least six months immediately before the day nomination papers are filed.

The person must not also be considered disqualified under provisions of the Local Government Act.

The Thornhill trustee on the school board not only represents Thornhill but the area reaching east of Thornhill along Hwy16, Jackpine Flats, Old Remo and Lakelse Lake.
