Taillefer got 338 votes, Ponto received 317 votes, and Lueneberg got 270 votes.

Joining the three incumbents is newcomer Michelle Turnbull, who beat the lone other newcomer in the race for the fifth seat on District Council, Sherry Davies.

“It was a very good evening”, said Fraser.

“It was a little painful counting the ballots, it took a long time. We may need to look at going to an electronic system for next time”.

Turnbull received 290 votes, while Davies finished with 134 votes.

In total, there were 402 ballots cast.

Here are the election results.
