Highest voter turnout in recent history; McMorris wins Reeve in a landslide

By M. Haddad

The new VB Council was sworn in Monday, July 30, 2018, in Victoria Beach, taking office immediately and getting right down to business. Until this was done, they had no official capacity to address the urgent issues facing the RM.

The short ceremony, witnessed by a group of local residents, was followed by their first meeting with the Operations Manager and CAO to be provided with background and updates for moving forward.

This new Council was part of an election that saw the highest voter turnout in recent history. 56.3% of eligible voters put the first female Reeve ever into office in the RM of Victoria Beach with a landslide of over 80%.
