Three school trustees have been acclaimed to the islands newly-drawn school board, but there’s fierce competition for the remaining two seats.
Acclaimed are newcomer Ina Biron to the Old Massett seat, incumbent Sharon Matthews to the Masset seat and incumbent Wayne Wilson to the Skidegate seat.
Three people are running for the seat representing both Queen Charlotte and Sandspit, including the two trustees who currently represent the communities. (The two seats were combined when the board was downsized to five trustees from seven.) They are Charlotte trustee Shirley Hawse, Sandspit trustee Gail Henry and political newcomer Christine Martynuik.
And an incredible five candidates are vying for the new seat representing Port and Tlell: Port trustee Margaret Brown, Tlell trustee Andreas Uttendorfer, Delina Myles, Lisa Gyorgy and Brigid Cumming.
The election will be held Nov. 19.
