Agassiz’s mayor seeking second term

District of Kent: John Van Laerhoven announces he will run in municipal election on Nov. 15

District of Kent mayor John Van Laerhoven has announced he will run for a second term as mayor.

Agassiz’s mayor, John Van Laerhoven, has announced he will seek re-election on Nov. 15.

“I am running for a second term as mayor,” he said Tuesday morning. “I’d like to be a part of continuing good service and a great future for all our residents.”

Van Laerhoven was acclaimed mayor in the last election, as the only listed candidate in the mayoral race for the District of Kent. This year, B.C.’s councils will begin serving four year terms, instead of the current three years.

Councillor Duane Post has also announced he will let his name stand in this election. Post was a newcomer to council three years ago.

In Harrison Hot Springs, where there are often numerous candidates for the five seats on council, Coun. John Buckley is the only current member who has announced he will run again.

But, there is still plenty of time left for filing. The nomination period began today (Sept. 30), and the deadline for nominations is on Oct. 10 at 4 p.m.
