Fifteen people running for Harrison seats

All incumbents decide to run in November 19 election

Five candidates are running for mayor in the Village of Harrison Hot Springs.

Included in that list are incumbent Mayor Ken Becotte, former mayors Leo Facio and John Allen, along with Arnold Caruk and Leslie Ghezesan.

All four of the incumbent councillors are hoping to return to their jobs as well, despite one councillor previously informing the Observer that he would not seek re-election.

Councillors Dave Kenyon, Allan Jackson, Bob Perry and Dave Harris are listed as candidates. Dave Harris had told The Observer he would not seek re-election, however candidates did have until October 14 to make a final decision. That list was released by the Chief Election Officer on Friday at 4 pm.

There are six others running for the four spots on council, bringing the total number of names on the ballots to 10. Included in the list are Sonja Reyerse-Peters, Andrew Bakiuk, Terry Mitchell, Zoltan Kiss, Richard Shelley and Niek De Brouwer.

Election day is November 19.
