Tofino’s unofficial election results are in and the community’s six-member municipal council seems set to embark on a new four-year term under acclaimed Mayor Josie Osborne.
Each incumbent candidate who ran in this election looks to have retained their seat with Coun. Cathy Thicke securing the most votes at 344.
Other incumbents to earn another term were: Al Anderson (324 votes), Dorothy Baert (321 votes), Duncan McMaster (317 votes) and Ray Thorogood (281 votes).
The unofficial results have Greg Blanchette (263 votes) as the only new face on Tofino’s council. If the unofficial results ring true, Blanchette would take the place of outgoing councillor Garth Cameron who opted not to run in this election.
Gurmail Aujla (255 votes) and Marty Kukler (245 votes) look to have fallen just short of being elected.
Tofino Mayor Josie Osborne ran unopposed and was acclaimed.
Out of 1,493 eligible voters in Tofino, 519 cast ballots.
