Election costs up in the air
Tue, Nov 20, 2001
It will cost school taxpayers $143,172.03 to run the school board elections in Winnipeg School Division next October -- but there's a catch. Chief electoral officer Richard Kachur's price tag for the Oct. 23, 2002 election is based on voting for three trustees in each of the current three wards. Board chair Liz Ambrose said last night she could not estimate how much it would cost to switch to a system of electing one trustee in each of nine wards, a proposal that trustees are considering after lobbying by community groups who say the current enormous wards of 40,000 or more voters prevent many less-affluent and more diverse candidates from running. Ambrose was uncertain if a study of a new ward system could be conducted and considered by Kachur's spring deadline to have new wards in place for next fall's ballot. Six other city divisions being merged into three divisions are already scrambling to change their structures.

Friesen defeats nine others for school board job Thu, Feb 15, 2001 KRIS Friesen was elected last night as the Dugald area's third trustee on the Transcona-Springfield school board in less than 28 months. Friesen, with 154 of 356 votes cast, defeated nine other candidates in a Ward 4 byelection that saw a turnout of 15.2 per cent of the eligible voters.Other candidates who ran were: Kathryn Anderson, Greg Andrushko, Bob Clarke, Brad Collignon, Gary Crumb,Betty-Lynn Imlah, Marcel Lamoureux, Jack Lang and Michael Sonmor. Larry Kociuk won the seat in the general election in late October of 1998, but quit without explanation less than three months later. Linda Yarecki defeated six other candidates to win the subsequent byelection -- which saw a voter turnout of only 14.3 per cent -- but Yarecki in turn quit early last month, saying after a divisive school bus strike that she was fed up with the board's bitter in-fighting.
