says Min­is­ter Ed­die Joyce will have to is­sue an or­der for a spe­cial elec­tion at a later date, af­ter only two res­i­dents put their names for­ward for nom­i­na­tion in Sun­ny­side for the up­com­ing mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion.

“It’s very dis­ap­point­ing,” said cur­rent mayor Robert Snook, who has not put his name for­ward for nom­i­na­tion.

“It’s dis­cour­ag­ing be­cause we’ve worked so hard to get where we are now, and it makes you won­der about the whole sit­u­a­tion and where it’s go­ing … I was very dis­ap­pointed that no new peo­ple came for­ward.”

both of whom have served on coun­cil pre­vi­ously, were the only two who put their names for­ward for nom­i­na­tion.
