Election results affirmed in Alberni Valley

Re-count in two close areas conducted for ACRD

Both the City of Port Alberni and the Alberni-Clayoquot Regional District have finalized the votes from the Oct. 20 election, including a re-count in two rural areas where the difference in votes was five or fewer.

In Area F (Cherry Creek) there was one small change, according to ACRD chief electoral officer Wendy Thomson: Dianne Bodnar ended up with one more vote and her opponent, Darren DeLuca, one fewer vote. Bodnar won the seat by seven votes.

In Area C (Long Beach), Thomson affirmed that Kel Roberts defeated incumbent director Tony Bennett by three votes.

Thomson said she had received a request for a re-count from one of the candidates, but declined to say who or which riding.

In the city, “none of the numbers changed at all,” chief electoral officer Davina Hartwell said.

“I double-checked all our numbers and went through all our ballots.”
