Port Edward incumbents reveal plans for November election

The list of names that will make up Port Edward's 2014 municipal election ballot is starting to take form.

The list of names that will make up Port Edward’s 2014 municipal election ballot is starting to take form, with the nomination period officially opening this week.

Many of the names will be familiar as most of the individuals currently sitting on council have confirmed they will be running again.

This includes Coun. Christine McKenzie, who said she had been approached by a number of Port Edward residents who encouraged her to run for office again.

“I enjoy the input, and I love my community. I like to be on hand to help,” said McKenzie.

Murray Kristoff is also planning to seek reelection for a councillor seat.

“I want to see the continuation of the good relationship the current council has with the LNG proponents in the area, and worked toward that goal of having an LNG terminal here,” explained Kristoff.

Coun. Dan Franzen also hopes to continue with the work currently being undertaken by council.

“I’d like to see a lot of the projects that I’ve helped get started get finished, and hopefully make Port Edward more prosperous in the near future. There’s so much more to do here that I just feel we need to carry on with what we’re doing. We have a good group right now,” he said.

Port Edward Mayor Dave MacDonald said he has picked up a nomination package, but has not yet decided if he will put his name forward for this year’s election.

Coun. Knut Bjorndal did not immediately return requests for comment by the Northern View.
