Ginette Sauvé-Frankel re-elected
5 November 2007
After a hard-fought campaign in Westmount, the incumbent English Montreal School Board (EMSB) commissioner [and Wednesday Nighter] Ginette Sauvé-Frankel was given a clear mandate by local voters for another four years at the post.
Though marred by low voter turnout across the province, Sunday’s school board elections saw a slightly better-than-expected showing of voters at the District 7 polls in Westmount High School. According to statistics released by the EMSB, less than 20 per cent of the reported 5,073 residents eligible to vote in this district’s English elections actually cast a ballot — up slightly from previous years, but still quite low.
When the dust settled on Sunday evening, Sauvé-Frankel had received 528 votes, or 63.23 per cent of votes cast, while her opponent, former FACE principal Nick Primiano, received 307 votes. More in the Westmount Examiner
We know all Wednesday Nighters join us in offering our sincerest congratulations to Ginette while recognizing her devotion to furthering the education of the next generations.
