UPDATE: Grinham will have to contest Cumberland seat in Comox Valley School District

The Comox Valley School District will have at least three new faces on the board of trustees for the next three years.

The Comox Valley School District will have at least three new faces and perhaps a familiar one from the past on the board of trustees for the next three years.

With the close of nominations Friday at 4 p.m., incumbent Janice Caton and newcomer Donna Gambacorta were elected by acclamation as the trustees representing Courtenay.

Newcomer Dr. Peter Coleman is the only candidate for the lone Comox seat.

Former school board chair Rick Grinham will vie with Yolanda Goodwin for the soon-to-vacant Cumberland seat on the School District 71 board of trustees.

Incumbents Sheila McDonnell (Area A) and Tom Weber (Area B) were elected by acclamation, as was Paula Selby (Area C).

Not running for re-election are current board chair Susan Barr, vice-chair Corinne McLellan, Fran Goldberg and Danny White.

Provincewide municipal elections happen Nov. 19.
