Current chairman trails in poll vote


Most races were close, and all incumbents but two appeared to be headed for re-election in the Colville Business Council general poll election Saturday.

Absentee ballots could change most races, but the unofficial tally Monday showed that incumbents in Inchelium District, Position 1, and Nespelem District, Position 1, were both in doubt.

In the Inchelium District 1 race, incumbent Chairman Jim Boyd trailed challenger George Simpson, 95-49.

In the Nespelem District 1 race, incumbent William “Billy” Nicholson II trailed Willie Womer, 113-94.

In other general election races, Sheliah Cleveland, in Nespelem District Position 2, was leading Brian Nissen, 111-95. In Inchelium District Position 2, Marvin Joseph Kheel led Larry K. Allen, 85-60.

In Keller District Position 1, Joseph L. Somday led Billie Jo Bray, 32-17.

In Omak District position 1 race, Edwin L. Marchand led Darlene “Dar” Burke, 66-33. And in Omak District 2, Michael E. Marchand, was edging Karen Condon, 52-46.

Absentee ballots will be counted later this week.
