Hardy councillors say farewell

A pair of Port Hardy councillors will not be running in the upcoming election

A pair of Port Hardy councillors will not be running in the upcoming election because they’ve moved out of the district.

Larry Woodall is finishing his term despite the fact he moved out of the area some months ago. Woodall agreed to stay on council to avoid a senseless by-election.

Coun. Scott White, who’s employed by the CIBC, announced Oct. 11 at council’s regular meeting he too will be moving from the area to accept  a promotion at a Naniamo branch of his bank.

“I’ll  be leaving in about two weeks,” he told Mayor Bev Parnham and council.

“I’ll be back and forth between Nanaimo and Port Hardy for the next couple of months,” said White, who noted he’ll be able to finish his term and fulfill his district responsibilities before he goes.

“I can say I’m happy for you, but not so happy for us,” Parnham said at the meeting.

“We wish you the best and I’m sure you’re going to set the world on fire down there.”
