School board chair forced out of election, others drop out

  • Oct. 21, 2005 6:00 a.m.

School board chair Andreas Uttendorfer won’t be a candidate in the upcoming election, after he failed to file original copies of his nomination papers by the deadline at 4 pm today (Friday).
Chief election officer Janet Beil said Mr. Uttendorfer faxed his nomination papers to the Prince Rupert regional district office by the Oct. 14 deadline, but candidates who submit by fax are required to mail the original papers, to be received by Oct. 21.
“I didn’t receive his nomination papers by 4 pm today,” Ms Beil said. Mr. Uttendorfer is currently in San Francisco, she added.
Two candidates for other offices also withdrew their names of their own accord by the withdrawal deadline today, Ms Beil said.
They are Edith Bell, who had been running for Queen Charlotte council, and Travis Glasman, who had been running for the Moresby Island Management Committee. Mr. Glasman continues to be a candidate for regional district director, she said.
In Port Clements, Ron Haralson has withdrawn from the race for mayor, said administrator Dana Schmidt. That leaves two candidates in the race – incumbent Dale Lore and challenger Cory Delves. And Mary Standbridge has withdrawn as a candidate for councillor.
