One vote difference means recount in Area E

  • Nov. 20, 2005 6:00 p.m.

In Sandspit, in the end, it came down to a single ballot. And that ballot had an X next to Travis Glasman, winning him tonight his first term as regional district director for Moresby Island.
Mr. Glasman was in the room when the votes were being counted earlier tonight. “It was as dramatic as it gets… and the most fun I’ve had in a long time,” he said.
His one-vote victory meant defeat for Duane Gould, a longtime Sandspit resident who has represented the community at the regional district for many years.
The results are not official – the ballots will be sent to Prince Rupert for an official recount, Mr. Glasman said. But he said that he is confident in his win, since he was present while the votes were counted.
Mr. Glasman said he was looking forward to a “very challenging” job representing the community, and said he was especially excited about the excellent voter turnout in Sandspit.
Mr. Glasman polled 89 votes, Mr. Gould 88.

For the Moresby Island Management Committee, the results are as follows:

Elected are Carol Bowler, Duane Gould, Gail henry, Bill Quass, and Carol Wagner.
Alternates are Sherry Price, Bill Sheridan and Gord Usher.
