At the Jan. 31 regular Creston town council meeting, chief election officer Bev Caldwell and assistant election officer Donna Cassel were voted an increase in the stipends they were paid for running the 2011 local government elections (they also co-ordinate the school board vote and counting of ballots).

Caldwell will receive $1,250, up from the previous $850, and Cassel gets a bump from $750 to $1,000.

“These women put an enormous amount of extra time into an election,” town manager Lou Varela said.

The stipends bring the Creston employees into line with other Kootenay election officials, Varela said.
