There’s a school board race in Terrace after all

Two people filed by the extended deadline of today

After a long weekend and an extended nomination period, it looks like there will be a race for school board in Terrace after all.

Three names are now in the running to represent Terrace as a Coast Mountains School District trustee, with two seats to be filled.

Chief electoral officer Cathy Jackson extended the nomination period until 4 p.m. today on Friday after only one name – that of current board chair Art Erasmus – was nominated by the official filing deadline.

By today, Roger Leclerc, who currently sits on the school board as vice chair, and Diana Penner, who served previously as a trustee, had both been nominated.

Leclerc had previously said he wasn’t going to run this year, noting he was too busy.

And Diana Penner is currently sitting as Area C representative on the Kitimat-Stikine Regional District after the sudden resignation of director Doug McLeod.

Longtime trustee Gary Turner will once again be Thornhill trustee, as he was the only person nominated in that area.

And in Kitimat, incumbent Raymond Raj, and newcomers Tim Carter and Margaret Warcup are vying for that city’s two spots.

Angela Brand Danuser is the only nominee in the Stewart area.

And further east, Larry Joseph and Shar McCrory are looking to represent the Hazeltons, with one trustee spot on the board.
