One of the mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions can­di­dates who reg­is­tered early in the process has de­cided to with­draw from the race.

“With the high num­ber of can­di­dates run­ning, no one’s voice will be heard at the fo­rums ex­cept the in­cum­bents,” said Jim Black.

It was March 8 the News re­vealed Black, a re­tired school teacher, had reg­is­tered as a can­di­date.

Black ran in the 2013 mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion and in the 2015 pro­vin­cial elec­tion.

The fi­nal day to reg­is­ter as a can­di­date in the mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion is Mon­day. So far there are three can­di­dates for mayor and 15 for coun­cil. Of the 15, there are seven in­cum­bents.
