Voter turnout is on the rise in Chilliwack

Election 2014: Guide to voting for Cultus Lake Park Board

Cultus Lake Park Board: Chilliwack electors will be voting for two of five members of the newly reconfigured Cultus Lake Park Board

There may be some confusion out there.

It’s the first time a total of five Cultus Lake Park Board commissioners will be elected in 2014, so here’s a mini voters’ guide.

On Saturday, along with City of Chilliwack Council and School District elections, Chilliwack electors will also be voting for two of the five members of the newly reconfigured Cultus Lake Park Board, which was cut down from seven members.

Electors of Cultus Lake Park will vote for three Park Board members.

The reason why Chilliwack voters get to vote at all is because of the park’s history. City of Chilliwack was given title to Cultus Lake Park in a Crown grant from the province, and the Park Board was given the mandate to manage the park through the creation of the Cultus Lake Park Act of 1932.

Here are the candidates for Cultus Lake Park Board

Three candidates will be elected by Cultus Lake electors from the following:

• HALL, Charlotte

• LAMB, Joe

• PAYEUR, Larry

•TURCASSO, Rose

Two candidates will be elected by City of Chilliwack electors from the following:

• ALLINOTT, Scott,

• BAUER, Darcy

• RENWICK, David

• SHANKS, Malcolm

• TOEWS, Carlton
