Paul Demenok wins Area C byelection
The voters of the South Shuswap resoundingly selected Paul Demenok to represent them on the Columbia Shuswap Regional District board.
Demenok had a total of 667 votes in Saturday's byelection, which had been called to fill the vacancy left by the death of former Area C director Ted Bacigalupo. His closest rival, Dan Adrian, had 237 votes.
The results are still preliminary, however, given the margin of victory, it is unlikely the outcome would change.
Election totals are as follows:
Paul Demenok 667
Dan Adrian 237
Opal Hendrickson 88
Cal Cosh 35
Chris George 22
