Wilson Brown now heads Old Massett Village Council

  • Dec. 3, 2003 7:00 p.m.

Old Massett Village Council has a new chief councillor-Wilson Brown.
Five people were elected to the council Monday, but one seat is being appealed, says Band Administrator Peter Lantin.
As the Observer went to press and to the web, the four elected counselors were Judy Williams, Leo Gagnon, Steve Samuels and Chris Adams.
The Chief Electoral Officer will meet this week with the appeals committee, and conduct a recount with the results expected by the end of this week, says Mr. Lantin.
Because of the appeal, the council’s first meeting has not been set yet.
Also on the council are Brad Setso, Marlene Liddle and Terry Hamilton, elected last December.
The Old Massett Village Council has staggered elections with three seats elected in one year, and five seats elected the next year.
