So far, at least 10 people have picked up packages to run for mayor or council in the District of Kent.
And tonight, those council hopefuls and any others intending to run are invited to learn a little more about what could be in store, if they win a seat on Nov. 15. Claire Lee, director of corporate services, said anyone interested in running for office would benefit from the information session, which begins at 7 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 6. The session will be held in the District office.
CAO Wallace Mah will be speaking briefly about the history and importance of municipal politics, and elections officer Bev Kennedy will be giving a general overview of the elections process.
There will be an informal question and answer period following the presentations.
The nomination period will close at 4 p.m. on Oct. 10.
