As a recent post to the Tideline suggests, “there seems to be an undercurrent of spite, allegation, sabotage and just plain nastiness” on Cortes Island following the recent election. A very small group of Noba Anderson’s opponents do not appear to have accepted the results and sought to change them.

The fire; the allegations; the evidence

What does it mean for Cortes Island?

numbers correction, for the record
Comment by Kelly on 26th January 2019
Hi Patricia - in the interest of accuracy, here is a correction to the numbers error in your post : In the 2018 election Noba's votes were tallied at 353 and George's at 281 - a difference of 72 votes, not 36.
A different opinion
Comment by Patricia L on 22nd January 2019
I do not believe that the allegations have anything to do with politics. Don't forget though that the island was clearly divided. With a difference of only 36 votes, it is obvious that both candidates had equal support. This is not a popularity contest nor is it worth mud slinging over. Either a law has been broken, or it has not. Cortes Island, a difference of opinion surrounded by water.
