Another female elected to the Lower Nicola Indian Band Council.
Election officer Raymond Phillip[s says Connie Joe was the winner of yesterday's LNIB by-election, garnering 37 votes of the 195 votes cast, and that three were no major issues during the voting process..
"We had a few spoiled ballots that came through the mail, but other than that everything went good."
Joe now takes over the Council position vacated by Nicolas Peterson, who moved from the community shortly after being re-elected during the band's general election back in October.
She is the fifth women on the LNIB Council, joining Leona Antoine, Lesley Manuel, Joanne Lafferty, and Lucinda Seward.
The five are accompanied by Harold Joe, and Bill Bose.
