The Chamber of Commerce of St. Eustatius and Saba held a by-election on Tuesday, December 8, to fill three seats on the Board, one for Saba and two for Statia, the Chamber stated Wednesday.
On Saba, there were no registered candidates for this election. Kelly A. Johnson, a current member of the Board whose term was to be vacated, was returned to the Board for another term.
On Statia a total of 56 voters, from a voters’ register of over 300, turned out to vote. For the two available seats for Statia, incumbent Board Member Ebbie M. Schmidt-Hinds was reelected with a majority of votes, and former Vice President of the Chamber and former Commissioner Carlyle A. Tearr, who had stepped down to take up his Commissioner’s duties at the time, was also elected to a full term.
