12 Days to Go...

With 12 Days until both incumbents and challengers to various local government elected positions can file their election papers with the local Chief Election Officer on Tuesday, October 4th at 9:00 am, let's take a look at where the local election races stand:

Wells - No announcements to date

Quesnel - Mary Sjostrom announces Mayor re-election bid.  Mike Cave/Laurey-Anne Roodenburg both announce Councillor re-election bids with Peter Couldwell announcing his intention to retire from municipal politics

School District #28 - No announcements to date

School District #27 - Sheila Boehm announces bid for Trustee seat

Williams Lake: Scott Nelson/Walt Cobb announce bids for Mayor seat.  Kerry Cook announced in June 2010 her Mayor re-election bid.  Steve Forseth announces bid for Councillor seat.  Laurie Walters/Surinderpal Rathor both announce Councillor re-election bids

100 Mile House: Maureen Pinkney announces bid for Mayor's seat

Cariboo Regional District: Directors for Areas A, C, D, F, G, I, J and L announce re-election bids.  Directors for Areas E, H, K announce they'll be retiring and Director for Area B has not announced if she (Roberta Faust) seek re-election.  Heloise Dixon-Warren announces bid, via Facebook, for Area 'B' Directorship

With very few announcements coming from the Municipal/School District election races to date, it'll be interesting to see if next week or the week following (start of period to file election papers) will see a glut of local election announcements with the run to October 14th (last date to file nomination papers for the Districts of Wells/100 Mile, Cities of Quesnel/Williams Lake, Cariboo Regional District and School Districts #27/28)...
