Creighton politics got a new look Wednesday with the election of a new Town Council and school board. Three fresh faces joined three incumbents to form the new Creighton Town Council. The Council consists of Roland Beasse, Valery Dixon and Colleen Stallard, and new aldermen Don Aasen, Kevin Elliott and La Verne Hinzman. Stallard captured the most votes with 254. A full three-quarters of the 340 voters checked off her name on their ballots. She was followed by Hinzman (215 votes), Beasse (203), Valery Dixon (203), Aasen (202) and Elliott (175). Also running were Shane Connell, Ken Hoglander, Helen Hunter and Wilfred Boychuk, the community's mayor from 1994 to 2003. Former alderman Bruce Fidler became mayor through acclamation. The school board remains nearly the same, with Janet Clark the only new face at the trustee table. She joins incumbents Tracy Andrusiak, Ray Biberdorf, Terry Brown, Heather Jacobson and Bernadette Hillier, the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation (PBCN) representative. Clark received the most votes of the trustees with 292 and was followed by Jacobson (254 votes), Andrusiak (252), Brown (236) and Biberdorf (234). Hillier was acclaimed to her position, as she was the only PBCN representative in the race. Four other candidates were vying for spots on the school board: Linda Chretien, Pat Derbowka, Gloria Frame and incumbent Robert LeSage. The complete election results became available late Wednesday night.
