Dan Curtis was elected to a third term as the Mayor of Whitehorse last night.
Curtis won by quite a margin, early results indicating he received over a 1000 more votes than his closest competitor, Rick Karp a longtime businessman and former executive director of the Whitehorse Chamber of Commerce.
Rejoining Curtis on council are: Samson Hartland, Dan Boyd and Jocelyn Curteanu. Leading the vote tally were three others, former NDP MLA Jan Stick, and newcomers Steve Roddick and Laura Cabott.
“I felt like I had the community behind me, it’s very humbling for me, because you always second guess what you’re doing, and perhaps you could and should be doing better,” said Curtis last night.
Curtis was instrumental in the signing of a Commitment to work on reconciliation and partnership projects with both First Nations in Yukon’s capital region.
