Four school board seats to be contested


TRURO – A dozen of the 16 seats with the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board will go uncontested in the election next month.

The Chignecto-Central Regional School Board passed its 2016-17 budget at a meeting in Pictou County on Wednesday night.

Two of those 12 seats will be held by two new members – Reg Pauley in District 5 and Robert George in District 7.

In the four seats to be contested, the incumbents are all re-offering and will face at least one opponent.
