Jim Taylor

Randy Cairns and Carol Hamilton return to the school trustee board, and will be joined by Edie Lissimore and Jim Taylor.

A longtime local teacher now retired, Taylor earned the highest number of votes with 3,450, with Hamilton coming second with 3,034. Lissimore earned 2,379 votes, and Cairns trailed with 2,293.

“It’s an experience,” said Taylor, moments after the ballot counting ended. “Seeing both myself and Edie elected reflects a push for a more open and trustee-controlled board.”

In the rural area, Shelley Carter won by 65 votes over Nick Field, with 204 to 139.
