Six compete for Alberni regional district seats

Six candidates will run for a vacant regional director’s seat in Cherry Creek, while five people will run for school trustee in a by-election in the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District.

Lucas Banton, Graham Hughes, Mike McDowall, Wade Nicklin, Bob Vandermolen and Derek C. Wong have accepted nominations for electoral Area F (Cherry Creek).

Cathy Braiden, Gaelle Anne Frey, Kelly Hepp, Mike McLeman and Nav Sharma have done the same for the office of school trustee.

Both seats became vacant last September when regional district chairman Glenn Wong died suddenly.

The nomination period for both by-elections closed on Jan. 11.

Voting will take place on Saturday, Feb. 16. Only Cherry Creek residents will be able to vote for the Area F (Cherry Creek) director. However, everyone in the Alberni Valley will be able to vote for the school trustee.
