Prince George vot­ers will have 13 can­di­dates to choose from for the eight city coun­cil­lor spots – and two for mayor.

Willy Ens, a rel­a­tive un­known, sub­mit­ted nom­i­na­tion pa­pers Fri­day to run against may­oral in­cum­bent Lyn Hall.

Ens could not be im­me­di­ately reached for com­ment but on a Face­book page, said he is a “rad­i­cal non­con­formist think­ing coach. Here to pre­serve Mother Earth for seven gen­er­a­tions for­ward.”

As for school board, run­ning for one of five area one (Prince George) seats are Betty Bekker­ing, Tim Ben­nett, Sarah Hol­land, Trudy Klassen, Al­lan Kranz, Stephanie Mikalishen-Deol, Ron Po­lillo, Corey Walker, Sharel War­ring­ton and Bruce Wiebe.

Harold Ed­wards and Bob Thomp­son are vy­ing to rep­re­sent area three (Rob­son Val­ley) and Shuirose Val­imo­hamed is the sole can­di­date for area two (Macken­zie).

As for the Fraser-Fort George Re­gional District board of di­rec­tors, War­ren Wil­son, (Elec­toral Area A Salmon River and Lakes), Bill Em­pey (Elec­toral Area D Ta­bor Lake-Stone Creek) and Art Kaehn (Elec­toral Area E Wood­pecker-Hixon) are in by ac­cla­ma­tion.
