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.

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.
