School board race in Terrace, Thornhill

FIVE are vying for the two Terrace seats on the Coast Mountains School District.

FIVE people are vying for the two Terrace seats on the Coast Mountains School District.

But incumbent Art Erasmus is the only sitting Terrace school trustee to file.

Charlotte Guno, Hal Stedham, who was defeated in 2008, and Roger Leclerc, a trustee years ago, filed papers by today’s deadline as did newcomer Ian Hayes.

Current trustee Diana Penner is not running again and neither is Tanis Kilpatrick.

There were three Terrace seats until this election as the board decided to reduce the number here to two and do the same in Kitimat to reflect a declining student population and the need to show financial restraint.

In Thornhill, incumbent trustee Gary Turner will face Lorrie Gowen, who has been a trustee for Thornhill and school board chair in past years.

There won’t be a race in Kitimat as current chair and trustee Barry Pankhurst and current trustee Ray Raj were the only ones to file.

The lone Stewart seat will be held by Shannon McFee.

And Lynn Newbery is returning as the lone trustee for Hazelton.
