Election 2014: Warfield voters opt for new faces

Ted Pahl wins Warfield mayoral race, Ferraro, Langman, Rakuson, Milne

  • Nov. 15, 2014 2:00 p.m.

Warfield voters opted for change Saturday as three candidates with no previous political experience garnered the most votes.

Preliminary results showed Ted Pahl selected as mayor with 469 votes over Bill Trewella (123 votes) and Jim Nelson (81 votes).

“My first thought was that it was a clear message from the voters,” Pahl told the Trail Times shortly after the results were announced.

“People are ready for a change.”

He tipped his hat to the other two mayoral candidates, who have both served the village in the past.

“I have a lot of respect for both Bill and Jim. They’ve both done a ton for this community.”

The village council will have three new faces including two rookies to the political arena. Newcomers Diane Langman (524 votes) and Shane Ferraro (455 votes) will be joined by Brett Rakuson (401 votes) and incumbent Tom Milne (302 votes) to complete the four-person council.

The other two council candidates were Bill Bain (293 votes) and incumbent John Crozier (273 votes) fell shy of their goal.
