Thornhill school trustee byelection set

Five in the running for Coast Mountains school board seat

Five people are standing for election as the school trustee for the Thornhill area, announced by the Coast Mountains School District last Friday, Dec. 4.

The Thornhill trustee on the school board represents Thornhill as well as the area east along Hwy 16, Jackpine Flats, Old Remo and Lakelse Lake.

The candidates include MaryAnn Freeman, Lorrie Gowen, Barbara Johnson, Diana Penner and Sandy Watson.

They are all running to represent the Thornhill area on the school district board for three years, which is the remainder of the term of longtime trustee Gary Turner, who passed away suddenly on Oct. 2. Full terms are four years.

The by-election is Jan. 9, 2016 and Cathy Jackson is the chief election officer.
