Update: October 26th

It was so close, but in the end, Mary M., the incumbent, received 9 more votes than I did. I attended a re-count at the CVRD Office in Duncan, on the Monday after the election. Despite numerous glitches in the ballot scanning machines, staff were able to complete the re-count.

The totals were the same, with the quirky machines saying that 3 ballots had been scanned, but not recorded! Knowing that those 3 ballots would not be enough to make a difference in the outcome, I asked that the ballots not be scanned, and congratulated Mary on her win.

I would also like to congratulate Mary on her win, here on the McNab's Corn Maze & Produce Farm website. Mary has already spent a lot of time and energy representing Area H for the past 22 years and I look forward to the next 4 years.

Thanks also to Bill Carter for putting his name forward to run in the Area H Director election.

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who participated in this election for their support.
