Prince Rupert Municipal Elections 2014

Frankly we didn't think that there would be a need for an archive of items on the 2014 Municipal election until at least after Labour Day.  However, recent events suggest that the political campaigning may be a summer long kind of experience, at least when it comes to the Mayoralty race.

With the announcement of the first competitor for incumbent Jack Mussallem revealed in mid June, it would appear that the time has come for our Election archive.

So, with the first stages of the fall race now in motion, updates on the file can be found below as we move towards November.

Our Archive can be found on the City Council home page and in our archive list on the right hand column.

For a preview of what could be some of the key talking points and issues of the 2014 campaign, see our City Council Discussion page and Education Notes archives for background on past items of interest.

Items related to the the Port Edward Council Election, SQCRD vote and School District 52 race can all be found below:

(List of candidates for the North Coast elections can be found here)

Note: The All Candidates Forums will be rebroadcast on CityWest Cable Channel 10 Wednesday, November 12.

Note: Video replays are being posted on line, for those that missed Tuesday evening's Forum.
