Islanders who are interested in running for a position on the regional district board can now pick up nomination packages right here. Last week, it looked like nomination packages would only be available from the Prince Rupert office, but administrator John Holland has now sent five packages over to each of the village offices in Masset, Port Clements and Queen Charlotte, and the community office in Sandspit. There are two positions on the regional district to be directly elected in the Nov. 15 municipal elections: the Area D (rural Graham Island) director and the Area E (Moresby Island) director. Potential candidates can pick up papers any time that the offices are open. The nomination papers must be submitted between Sept. 30 and Oct. 10.
