Friday is deadline for Sandspit position

  • Jul. 22, 2009 6:00 a.m.

Friday is the nomination deadline for anyone interested in running for Area E regional district director. The position had been held by Travis Glasman, but he resigned in June to start working full-time as the islands economic development officer. An election, if necessary, will be held Aug. 29. The new director will serve the balance of Mr. Glasman’s term, until December 2011. Nomination forms are available at the Sandspit community office when it is open, or by calling the regional district office in Prince Rupert at 888-301-2002. Nominations must be submitted by Friday, July 24, at 4 pm. The regional district meets about once a month, usually in Prince Rupert. The position is relatively well-paid, compared to other municipal positions on the islands – Mr. Glasman received $10,878 in remuneration during 2008, and had $7,759 worth of expenses covered.
