Official SD28 trustee vote counts confirm preliminary results

A few small errors in reporting did not change trustee vote rankings

Quesnel’s School District 28 has today announced the official election results from the Oct. 20, 2018 school trustee election.

Chief election officer Bettina Ketcham said there were a few small changes to the preliminary counts.

“There were a couple of tiny differences, but nothing that changed the order of the candidates.

“When we did the ballot verification on Monday, we found some of the numbers reported were incorrect.”

For example, votes for Tony Goulet were originally reported at 2,080 but the official results record 2,071 votes; Gloria Jackson’s vote count increased in the official results by one vote; and Wendy Clement’s votes increased in the official results by 20 votes, from 1,676 to 1,696.

Seven school trustees were elected at large:

1. TOBIN, Cyril – 2,182

2. GOULET, Tony – 2,071

3. JACKSON, Gloria – 2,035

4. RUNGE, Julie-Anne – 1,996

5. SCHONKE, Howie – 1,760

6. CLEMENT, Wendy – 1,696

7. CHAPMAN, Dave – 1,598

Roland Sawatsky was the only candidate not elected, winning a total of 1,447 votes.
