Chilliwack River Valley residents to vote on FVRD representative

While Area E has a vote, candidates acclaimed for Area D and Area H

As Chilliwack citizens get ready to vote in the municipal election, those residents living in the areas just outside the city’s boundaries also go to the polls.

But while those in the Chilliwack River Valley will choose who will represent them on the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) board of directors, folks in Popkum-Bridal Falls (Area D) and those in Cultus Lake-Columbia Valley-Lindell Beach (Area H) will not get to vote on FVRD directors due to acclamations.

For Area D, Bill Dickey ran unopposed and in Area H, Taryn Dixon was unopposed. Both are incumbents for those FVRD board seats.

In the Chilliwack River Valley, Area E, incumbent Orion Engar has a challenger in Jeff Bonner. Engar is a long-time valley resident, and Bonner is a local musician and owner of Tractorgrease.
