The District of Port Edward has put its electoral process into motion, providing a Notice to Residents of the upcoming Municipal election of October 20th and providing for some background information for District residents who may be considering a run for office.
The Notice which is now available on the District website, notes that nomination documents are now available at the District Office at 770 Pacific Avenue, with the nomination period set to take place from September 4th to 14th.
Once again, District voters will select One Mayor and Four Council members as part of the fall vote.
So far there has been no indication from Port Edward Council members as to their intentions, nor have there been any rumblings to this point as to whether any challengers are ready to try and grab a spot on the District Council.
The full notice for Port Edward can be reviewed below:
As we outlined on the blog yesterday, communities across the Northwest have launched the pre-election period by making nomination packages available for potential candidates.
The current make up of Port Edward Council includes:
Mayor Dave MacDonald
Councillor Dan Franzen
Councillor James Brown
Councillor Christine McKenzie
Councillor Grant Moore
In 2014, four residents offered up a challenge in the council race, with two of those contenders unseating incumbents.
In the Mayoralty race of four years ago, Alice Kruta made what turned out to be a bid to replace Mayor MacDonald.
