The Aurora (Labrador City) - - EDITORIAL - BY MIKE POWER

Un­like many mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties in this prov­ince, there was no trou­ble get­ting a full slate of can­di­dates for the up­com­ing mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion for the Town of Wabush.

The elec­tion will be held Sept. 26. Nom­i­na­tions were held at the Wabush town hall on Aug. 29. There are two can­di­dates for the po­si­tion of mayor - Ron­ald Bar­ron, who has pre­vi­ously served as mayor and on coun­cil, and Ter­rance Cur­ran, who has been a long­time mem­ber of coun­cil.

Run­ning for coun­cil­lors are Fran­cis De­lahunty, cur­rently on coun­cil, Richard Burke, who is also presently on coun­cil, and Mayor Colin Vardy.

Oth­ers seek­ing a coun­cil seat are Gertrude Can­ning, Samuel An­drews, Boyle AuCoin, and Mar­lene Bar­ron.

The elec­tion will take place at the Wabush recre­ation cen­ter (Mike Adam com­plex.) An ad­vance poll is planned for Sept. 19 at the Wabush town hall.

Mean­while, the nom­i­na­tion for can­di­dates for the Town of Labrador City takes place Sept. 5 be­tween 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the coun­cil cham­bers on Hud­son drive.

Labrador City will have one elec­tion for seven coun­cil­lors. The po­si­tion of mayor will be of­fered to the per­son with the most votes. That per­son does not nec­es­sar­ily have to ac­cept, in which case the po­si­tion will be of­fered to the per­son with the next high­est num­ber of votes.
