Scott back as Kitimat rep to regional district

Kitimat Council held it's own election to decide their regional district of Kitimat Stikine representative.

Kitimat Council held its election for their appointee to the Regional District of Kitimat Stikine board, where Corinne Scott and Mary Murphy made their pitch for why they were best suited to the job.

Corinne Scott would win that election, while Murphy would earn the alternate director title, in an election against Phil Germuth. Murphy had also nominated Mayor Joanne Monaghan for the position of alternate however Monaghan declined the nomination, saying there were already two good candidates in the running.

Scott was nominated by Germuth, and she said that a lot has been accomplished over the past year.

“We have accomplished a lot of administrative things within the regional district and I would really appreciate having the opportunity to finish up the issues that we’re dealing with in regards to the MK Bay Marina,” she said.

Murphy said any of Kitimat’s councillors would be an asset on the board, and that she’s interested in the regional district because of issues of land use, water systems, solid waste management, among other issues.

“I’m heavily concerned about with the lack of marinas in Kitimat,” she added, noting she submitting a motion to Kitimat Council to look at waterfront access options.

Murphy didn’t make any additional remarks when it came to the election for alternate, while Germuth did take the opportunity to make a few remarks.

Germuth noted that he’s already served as the alternate to the alternate director and has attended a few meetings.

“The MK Bay Marina concerns we have is paramount at this time,” he said. “I am asking for my fellow councillor’s support to keep the momentum going on the MK Bay Marina issue.”
