The byelection for a director to represent Electoral Area C on the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) Board is set for June 4.

Electoral Area C residents will be able to vote in advanced polling opportunities on May 25 and June 1.
Alternate Director Charles Pinker will remain as the interim director for Electoral Area C until the byelection. The RDN thanks Alternate Director Pinker for his time and efforts in fulfilling the role of interim director after the passing of Young.
