The Compass - - SPORTS -

In a dra­matic change from the 2009 mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion, vot­ers the Town of New Per­li­can will head to the polls Sept. 24.

This time around res­i­dents will have a choice of who will sit on their coun­cil for the next four years, un­like last time when only five res­i­dents were nom­i­nated for coun­cil’s seven seats.

By ac­cla­ma­tion, those five can­di­dates took their seat in coun­cil cham­bers, in­clud­ing in­cum­bent Mayor Linda Moyles.

The town did fill the ros­ter af­ter two more nom­i­nees went un­op­posed in the fol­low­ing months.

The num­ber has dou­bled for 2013, see­ing 10 seek­ing seats on coun­cil — four women and six men — with one can­di­date — Michael Ped­dle — just reach­ing the le­gal vot­ing age of 18.

Deputy Mayor Bill Du­ni­gan is the only in­cum­bent to not seek re-elec­tion.

Also on the bal­lot are: Robert Bown (in­cum­bent), Steve Fudge, Linda Gosling, Wil­liam Matthews ( in­cum­bent), Marie McDon­ald (in­cum­bent), Linda Moyles (in­cum­bent mayor), Mar­garet Pen­ney (in­cum­bent), Greg Shyshko and Max War­ren (in­cum­bent).
