Voters in Nakusp have chosen a long-time resident of Nakusp over a local businessman for city council.
Ken Miller, a retiree and former XXX, handily won a by-election in the community on Saturday by a vote of 238-73.
He defeated Reny Kitto, owner of a local electronics retail store.
Village officials say they’ll release the official numbers on Wednesday.
The by-election was called in April, after Councillor Janis Neufeld resigned for health reasons.
It’s not Miller’s first stint on council. He was also chosen to fill an empty seat on council back in 1993. His second term on council was in the early 2000s.
Miller, is also the treasurer of the Arrow Lakes Hospital Foundation and a volunteer at the Legion.
