The results are in and a new board has been formed for the Central Coast Regional District. Richard Hall (Area D), Alison Sayers (Area C), Samuel Schooner (Area E) and Cathi McCullagh (Area F) have been elected to serve four-year terms.

Hall (Area D – Hagensborg/Augsburg Church/Tatsquan Creek) and McCullagh (Area A – Outer Coast) were elected by acclamation. McCullagh is the incumbent for Area A.

Area C (Bella Coola Valley) saw the most candidates running, four total, with Sayers taking the clear win with 118 votes. She was followed by Mark Nelson with 30 votes, Jan Prins with 28 votes, and Drew Kovacic with 17 votes.

Area E (Townsite) saw newcomer Samuel Schooner running against long-time incumbent Brian Lande. Schooner took the position with 25 votes to Lande’s 16.

“It’s exciting that so many people care enough in our community to get out and vote! The CCRD has a great new team of directors, and I look forward to working with them and the CCRD staff,” said Sayers. “Elected officials should be accountable to their constituents, so I commit to listening, asking for input, and keeping our community informed of what we are doing at the CCRD. I am grateful for this opportunity to help our region move forward in an inclusive way.”

“The electorate decided whom they wanted to represent them for the next four years, and we will have to see if their choice was the right one,” said Prins. “Hopefully we will not see the same old, but go ahead and make the valley a better place to live and prosper.”

Lande and Nelson also offered their congratulations to the successful candidates.

A professional and informative campaign marked the character of the 2014 elections. Five school district trustees were also elected by acclamation and these are Frank Johnson, Crystal Anderson, Nicola Koroluk, Marisa Blewett and Christina Hoppe.
