Sandy Watson is to be the new school trustee representing Thornhill and area on the Coast Mountains School District board.
She defeated Barbara Johnson and Diana Penner in a byelection held yesterday and made necessary when Gary Turner passed away suddenly last fall.
Watson will fill the remaining three years of Turner’s four-year term.
Just 73 people turned out to vote.
Unofficial results have Watson receiving 33 votes, Penner 27 and Johnson 13.
The official Declaration of Official By-election Results will be released tomorrow.
