Thompson Nicola Regional District incumbent Bill Kershaw has been elected once again as the TNRD Director for Area ‘O’ receiving 191 votes.

Kershaw was asked what he wanted to say to his constituents after the Oct. 20, 2018, election results were made official? He stated, “I want to thank everyone for their support and for re-electing me for another four years as your TNRD Director. I look forward to the new challenges that another term will bring, and also to the Trans Mountain Pipeline.”
