“We are so proud of all of our community members and their passion for being involved,” said Chief Chad Eneas in a news release. “We welcome the newly elected council and look forward to their fresh perspectives as they each contribute their own personal and professional experience for the whole of the community.”
The first meeting for the new council is December 5th.
The legitimacy of the by-election was challenged by protesters outside the polling station who claimed proper procedures were not followed.
