The deadline for nominations for town councillor and mayor, and reeves and councillors, was Oct. 7. It is encouraging to see the interest in these elections.
Running for town councillor are incumbents Kathy Hamilton, Allan Bunz, Mike Greenbank and Dan Nicurity, and newcomers Dwayne Linder, Jordan Ethier and Rob Pilloud. Mayor candidates are Shawn Murray and Kevin Kay.
Those who can vote ... 18 years old and either have lived in Wawota for at least three months or own property in Wawota. I find it difficult to know who to vote for as I know these candidates as friends or neighbours but don't necessarily know how much they would contribute as members of the town council. We need to get to know the new comers and see what ideas and work ethics they have.
Election day is Nov. 9.
