There are two new faces in the Fraser Cascade Board of Education, following Saturday’s civic election.

One of them is Rose Tustian, who is actually making a return to the board after three years off. She will cover the Agassiz-Harrison area with incumbents Alan Fraser and Ron Johnstone.

In the Hope electoral area, the new trustee is Pat Furness. Pat will work alongside current board chair Linda McMullan and Marv Cope.

Trustees who were not re-elected are Jim Sinclair (who served Hope) and Marilyn Warren (Agassiz-Harrison).

A seventh seat is held on the Fraser Cascade school board, in the Canyon electoral area. That seat was won by incumbent Tom Hendrickson by acclamation.

The school board meets regularly in a rotating list of schools in Harrison, Agassiz, Hope and Boston Bar, and those meetings are open to the public.

It was a tight race for school board, with Tustian and Furness challenging the incumbents.

Fraser earned 1,012 votes; Johnstone earned 1,004; Tustian earned 878; McMullan earned 1,115; Cope earned 946 and Furness earned 937. Warren and Sinclair earned 820 and 759 respectively.
