The all candidates forum in Cache Creek on Nov. 9: Herb Hofer

Anderson re-elected to another term

Ashcroft mayor re-elected; Cache Creek loses councillor Ida Makaro; Clinton gets a new mayor and council; Area I gets a new TNRD director.

There were few surprises in Ashcroft’s election for council as incumbent Mayor Andy Anderson was returned for a term term in office.

He garnered 501 votes while his challenger Joris Ekering pulled in only 99.

The three incumbent councillors were returned to their seats along with former councillor Jackie Tegart who gave up her seat in the 2008 election to challenge Anderson.

In Cache Creek there was slightly more drama as long-time incumbent councillor Ida Makaro lost her seat to two new council members.

Former councillor and former TNRD director Herb Hofer topped the polls in his first return to politics in almost nine years. He was followed by incumbent Darrell Rawcliffe, newcomer Lisa Dafoe and incumbent councillor Wyatt McMurray.

In Clinton both incumbents were voted out. Daniella Dyck gave up her council seat to run for mayor but was defeated by Jim Rivett.

Marian Nelson ran again for Council but placed fifth out of seven candidates. Susan Swan topped the polls, followed by Diana Guerin, David Park and Wayne Marchant.

There was no contest in Lytton. Mayor Jessoa Lightfoot was acclaimed, as was her council of Denise MacIntyre, Patricia Thorpe, Robert Austen and incumbent James Steer.

TNRD Area I’s director Barry Tait lost his bid for a fourth term and was defeated by newcover Steven Rice.

TNRD Area E’s director Sally Watson held on to her seat, beating former Clinton Mayor Roland Stanke.

Meanwhile, in Logan Lake, Mayor Marlon Dosch was acclaimed and all of the incumbent council members retained their seats.
