  • Oct. 17, 2011 8:00 a.m.

It looks like there will be school trustee elections in Old Massett and Skidegate this November, while the trustees representing the North, Central and South areas will be acclaimed. In Old Massett, incumbent Warren Wesley is running, as is Cynthia Samuels. In Skidegate, longtime trustee Wayne Wilson is running against Kim Goetzinger. For the South area seat, representing Queen Charlotte, Sandspit and Miller Creek, the only candidate is Carla Lutner, a newcomer to the school board. For the Central seat, Elizabeth Condrotte, first elected to the board in 2008, was the only candidate to submit a nomination. And for the North area, representing Masset, Tow Hill and Nadu Road, longtime trustee Sharon Matthews is the sole candidate. Chief election officer Duncan White said he will make the official declaration of acclamation or election next Monday, as candidates have until this Friday (Oct. 21) to withdraw their names.
