Enough would-be councillors to have an election

With just two days remaining before nominations close for the municipal election, it looks like Rossland will have an election for city council.

Eight people have filed nomination papers to run for council as of Thursday afternoon.

Mayor Kathy Moore has also filed her forms to run again for mayor. So far, no one’s thrown their hat in the ring to run against her.

Earlier this week Derek Baley, Chris Bowman, Scott Forsyth, John Greene, John Lake, and Janice Nightingale have filed nomination papers.

On Thusday, Andy Morel and Dirk Lewis filed submitted their paperwork.

Of the candidates, Greene, Morel and Baley have previous political experience, the first two having been on the current council.

Four members of the previous council told Rossland News they weren’t planning to run again.

The deadline for nominations is this Friday, September 14, at 4 p.m.

People wishing to run have to file the proper forms, available online or at City Hall, and have two people’s signatures supporting their nomination.

Visit rosslandnews.com at about 5 p.m. on Friday for the final list of candidates.

The municipal election will be held on October 20.
