New council is representative, says Mayor Kulesha

  • Nov. 20, 2005 7:00 a.m.

Eric Ross, who has lived in Queen Charlotte his entire life and whose name graces a room of the local community hall, won a seat on the village’s very first council tonight.
Mr. Ross, reached at home, said he is now looking forward to at least a year of solid work getting the first bylaws and other details in place for the new municipality.
He campaigned mainly on a platform of parking and road safety, one which clearly resonated with many voters here.
The other members of the town’s first council will be Gladys Noddin, Greg Martin and Kris Olsen.
Carol Kulesha, who was acclaimed and will become the new village’s first mayor on Dec. 7, said she was very much looking forward to working with the new council members.
“I just spoke to Gladys and Greg and Eric and congratulated them, I couldn’t reach Kris,” she said. “It looks like we’ll have a council that represents everybody in town.”
Ms Kulesha also said it looked like there had been a high turnout at the polls, which is always good.

Official results are as follows:

Greg Martin 182

Gladys Noddin 202

Kris Olsen 211

Eric Ross 172

Defeated were

Lance Barker 93

Richard Funk 149

Anne Mountifield 132

Sheila Wigmore 88
