Two acclaimed to Union Bay Improvement District board

The only two candidates for the Union Bay Improvement District board have been elected by acclamation.

The two sole local landowners who submitted their nomination papers prior to the nomination deadline have been declared elected by acclamation, confirms Kevin Douville, Union Bay Improvement District’s chief returning officer and administrator.

Bruce Livesey, an incumbent and current chair of the board of trustees and new trustee Marie Gaudreau will each serve a three-year term. They join remaining incumbents Carol Molstad, Anne Alcock and Alan Webb.

The advance poll opportunity scheduled for April 9 is no longer required and is therefore cancelled, as is the election portion of UBID’s annual general meeting (AGM) on April 20 in the downstairs

gymnasium at the UBID offices (former Union Bay Elementary School).

The AGM formally starts at  2 p.m., with landowners encouraged to arrive between 1 and 2 to sign in.
