Island communities elect their local government representatives every three years.  Voters in each of the twelve Local Trust Areas elect two local trustees to serve on a Local Trust Committee and to represent it on the Islands Trust Council.  Local trustees serve a three-year term and make land use planning decisions for their communities.  They are responsible for decisions about Official Community Plans, zoning and subdivision regulations and a variety of development applications.

A preliminary list of candidates for N. and S. Pender Islands Trust positions is provided below.  A final list will be determined by Chief Election Officers on Monday, October 20 at 4:00 p.m.  Candidates may withdraw from the election until Friday, October 17 at 4:00 p.m.

On South Pender Island the nomination period has been extended until 4:00 p.m. October 14 because there is only one candidate for the two local trustee positions.

Voting day is Saturday, November 15, 2008.

The candidates are: (*incumbant)

North Pender – Barbara Johnstone Grimmer; Victor Jones; Derek Masselink; Gary Steeves*

South Pender – Wendy Scholefield*
