Westbank First Nation Chief Robert Louie re-elected

The newly elected Westbank First Nation council will be sworn in today for a new three-year term.

Familiar faces will lead WFN for the next three years as the election produced only one change.

Brian Eli claimed the seat made available by departing councillor Lorrie Hogaboam, who chose not to run after serving one term on council.

Eli has served on council for WFN in ten past terms, the latest being 2007 to 2010.

Chief Robert Louie earned 60 more votes than candidate Roxanne Lindley to hold onto his seat.

Incumbent councillors Christopher Derrickson, Mike De Guevara and Mic Werstuik were also voted in for three more years.

The election saw approximately a 60 per cent voter turnout, with 335 ballots cast and 332 ballots counted, out of 559 eligible voters.
