Recount confirms Moore in Old Massett

  • Dec. 12, 2005 7:00 p.m.

Elizabeth Moore remains elected chief councillor of Old Massett following a recount Monday afternoon (Dec. 12).
The recount, conducted in the presence of scrutineers for all candidates, gave Ms Moore 139 votes, Mick Morrison 134 votes, Wilson Brown 132 votes and Deborah Brown 33 votes, with 20 spoiled ballots, chief election officer Norma Carle said.
The original count done after the Dec. 5 election had 17 spoiled ballots and one additional vote for each of the three leading candidates.
Ms Carle said two candidates appealed the extremely close election. The appeal board met on the weekend and decided that the election had been conducted appropriately and that there was no need for a re-election. However, the board noted that candidates could still request a recount, and that’s exactly what they did.
This may not be the final word on the election, Ms Carle said, as there may be further appeals.
The results for councillor were not contested and remain the same, with Judy Williams, Harold Yeltatzie, John T. Jones, David Smith and Sid Davidson all elected.
