New chief electoral officer appointed

Legislative Assembly unanimously voted Thursday to appoint deputy chief electoral officer Nicole Latour as the new chief electoral officer as of Nov. 1.

She will replace the current chief electoral officer, David Brock, who's four-year term is up at the end of the month. Latour was the first female Sargeant-At-Arms at the legislative assembly of the Northwest Territories, the former mayor of Fort Liard and a former coroner of the Northwest Territories. Many MLAs stood up to thank Latour, who watched the proceedings from the public gallery, for her ongoing public service during her appointment.
