Eleven candidates in Old Massett election

  • Nov. 26, 2004 1:00 p.m.

Eleven candidates are running for three positions on the Old Massett Village Council in this year’s election.
The seats are currently held by Marlene Liddle, Terry Hamilton and Brad Setso, who are all seeking re-election. The other candidates are Alfred Davidson, Sidney Davidson, Sherri Dick, Kevin Jager, Tracey Moore, Mick Morrison, Stanley Swanson Jr. and Harold Yeltatzie.
Regular voting takes place Monday Dec. 6 at the Old Massett community hall from 8 am to 8 pm. An advance poll was held Nov. 29. Everyone registered on the Old Massett band list and at least 18 years old on Nov. 26 is eligible to vote.
The village council is also holding a referendum at the same time as the election. The referendum is on whether the village’s custom election regulations should be changed so that anyone elected to the council must reside in Old Massett within 60 days of election, and that any council member who moves off the reserve automatically loses their seat.
