Tr’ondëk Hwëch’in Chief Roberta Joseph was re-elected April 20, beating former chief Eddie Taylor by a large margin.
Joseph garnered 162 votes versus 87 for Taylor.
It’s Joseph’s second-term as head of the First Nation.
“I am grateful and appreciate the support of the citizens and I feel that the citizens have confidence in the work and leadership that I’m providing,” she told the News.
The official swearing-in ceremony will take place sometime in early June.
J.T. Taylor, Darren Bullen, Babe Titus and Simon Nagano were elected councillors.
Those results are still unofficial because one candidate could request a recount, chief returning officer Charles Brunner said.
Provided there is no recount, the official election results will be released April 24.
