Rossland election results a clear verdict on Mountain Kingdom's governance woes

In a resoundingly decisive rejection of the status quo, Rosslanders elected Kathy Moore as mayor yesterday in a victory over Jill Spearn of 1240 to 363. The voter turnout was at 59% after a shabby 37% in 2011.

In terms of the councillor positions, newcomers easily took the most votes with Aaron Cosbey getting 1294, Marten Kruysse with 1276, Andrew Zwicker with 1275, Andy Morel with 1233 and Lloyd Mclellan with 948.

Next, oddly, there's a tie between John Greene and incumbent Tim Thatcher for the last seat on council with 788 votes apiece. The tie will be resolved this week.

Finally, in the wake of outrage that dogged his second term as mayor, Greg Granstrom got 444 votes.
