Nor'wester (Springdale) - - EDITORIAL -

Can­di­dates have come for­ward for the Sept. 26 mu­nic­i­pal elec­tions across the prov­ince, with nom­i­na­tion day tak­ing place re­cently in re­spec­tive towns.

Spring­dale

In Spring­dale, in­cum­bents Dave Edi­son, Brenda Dicks, Joe Tomp­kins and Fran­cis Wheeler will be seek­ing re-elec­tion. New­com­ers Rhodes Pel­ley, Peter An­drews, Kim Black­ler, Shawn Weir and Janet Har­ris hope to join the new coun­cil.

In Baie Verte, the town orig­i­nally re­leased a list of eight can­di­dates for the up­com­ing elec­tion, in­clud­ing Mindy Russell, Shawn Russell, Bran­don Philpott, Ryan White, Christo­pher How­ell, Bradley Haas, Ger­ard Dyer and Scott Furey. Later in the day, the orig­i­nal Face­book post was re­moved and a new post stated five peo­ple were ac­claimed to coun­cil and a by­elec­tion for the re­main­ing spots will be held later. Bradley Haas, Ger­ard Dyer and Mindy Russell were no longer on the list.
