This year’s municipal election is still one day away, but a couple of races are already decided.
Two Strathcona Regional District directors were officially acclaimed at Thursday’s board meeting, after their bids for elected office were unopposed.
Tom Yates, the chief election officer for the regional district, declared both Area C Director Jim Abram, who is also the chair of the regional district board, and Area A Director Gerald Whalley, elected by acclamation.
Yates signed forms for both Abram and Whalley declaring them elected on Oct. 20. The deadline for candidate nominations was Oct. 15.
It will be a quiet election year for Quadra Islanders as not only has their regional director already been elected, but the island’s school district representative, Susan Wilson, has also been acclaimed.
