Status quo for regional reps

Local voters re-elect Adamson and Forman for a second term

Incumbents swept the local Fraser Valley Regional District races in Saturday’s civic election.

Yale’s Dennis Adamson was re-elected as representative of Area B with 104 votes, while Dogwood Valley resident Andy Bishop garnered 68 votes.

“I’m very honoured that they chose to re-elect me,” said Adamson. “I plan to continue doing what I’m doing and providing a full-time service.”

A referendum on the construction of a fire hall in Sunshine Valley is already in the works for early next year, along with proposed zoning options for public input.

In addition, Adamson said he’s received board approval to commission a feasibility study for public water in the area. He’s also working on replacing Fire Hall No. 1 in Yale.

In electoral Area A, Lloyd Forman returns to office for a second term representing the communities of Boston Bar, North Bend and Canyon Alpine. He received 138 votes, while his challenger Jim Fougere earned 33.
