  • Oct. 10, 2014 6:00 p.m.

It looks like there will be elections for school trustees in Old Massett, the North Area (Masset and Tow Hill), and the South Area (Queen Charlotte and Sandspit), while trustees for Central and Skidegate will be acclaimed. When nominations closed Friday at 4 pm, there were three candidates running for the South seat: incumbent Carla Lutner, former trustee Christine Martynuik, and newcomer Denise Husband. In the North area, incumbent Sharon Matthews, currently the longest-serving trustee on the board, will face Harmony Williams. In Old Massett, Reg Davidson and Alfie Setso are both running. Mr. Setso has previous experience as a school trustee, while Mr. Davidson has not run before. In the Central Area (Port Clements and Tlell) and Skidegate, Elizabeth Condrotte and Kim Goetzinger are the only candidates and will be acclaimed. Ms Condrotte and Ms Goetzinger were both elected to their positions in 2011. The election will be held Nov. 15. (Candidates have until Oct. 17 to withdraw their names.)
