Wally Webber was elected for a third term as Chief Councilor of the Nuxalk Nation last week with a substantial lead in an election that saw a record eight candidates running.

Webber took 234 votes for the win followed by Sam Schooner with 117. John Schooner took 50, Chantelle Saunders 28, Theresa Hood 29, Peter Tallio 20, Jessica Saunders 12 and Ian Pootlass 6.

Webber has served two full terms as Chief since being elected in 2013. Spencer Siwallace was elected in 2007 for two terms before losing to Andrew Andy in 2011. Andy then served one term before losing to Webber in 2013.

Out of 43 candidates running for councillor positions twelve were elected: Darlene Hall, Marshall Hans Jr., Blair Mack, James Mack Sr., Mary Mack, Kenneth Morton, Rhonda Morton, Jimmy Nelson Jr., Chantelle Saunders, Jamie Schooner, Rita Svisdahl, and Crystal Tallio.

Webber is now slated to serve another two-year term until the next election in March 2019.
