Election season fever.

The candidates have begun their race for municipal election in Fort St. James with five people running for municipal council.

 

 

 

“I believe that voting is the first act of building a community as well as building a country” – John Ensign

 

 

 

On Nov. 15 Fort St. James residents will get a chance to contribute to the building of their community as they choose who will sit on municipal council for the next four years.

While Mayor Rob MacDougall is running uncontested, two councillors, Joan Burdenuik and Riley have stepped down from their position and three others have submitted candidacy.

Brenda Gouglas and Kris Nielsen, both form councillors, have announced their candidacy as well as newcomer to municipal politics, Brad Miller, owner of Bam Bam Trucking in Fort St. James.

Running for re-election are current councillors Russel Gingrich and Dave Birdi.

With five candidates running and four council seats available, it is anyone’s guess who the odd person out will be after Nov. 15

Regionally, Tom Greenaway representative for Rural Area C of the Bulkley-Nechako District has submitted his bid for re-election and is running unopposed.

School District 91 will be electing a new trustee as well with Alexandra Luggi and Lucille Duncan running for the position.

 

As is the Caledonia Courier’s civic duty, we have outlined the candidates running for municipal council so that you, the public, can be as informed as possible prior to voting.
