After a tie vote in early September, the Katzie First Nation held a run-off by-election to elect a new chief.
Susan Miller, who lives on the Katzie reserve #2 in Langley, won the election on Friday with 89 votes, beating Peter James of Barnston Island who got 79 votes.
Miller is chief until the next election set for April 2014.
The by-election was triggered when the previous chief, Ed Pierre, stepped down mid-term.
Four Katzie band members ran in the by-election in early September, but Miller and James tied in the vote for first place, thereby requiring a second vote.
Miller’s first day on the job was Monday, Oct. 28.
