UPDATE: Deadline for nomination papers to be filed closes, list of candidates below

Candidates for November's municipal election have started filing their papers, and there is at least one new face seeking a spot on council for the next term.

The deadline for people to file papers for this November’s municipal election passed at four p.m. today, and below is the information available at press time.

According to Chief Electoral Officer Robert Grodecki, incumbent Jack Mussallem, Corinna Morhart and Kathy Bedard have filed papers for the position of mayor, while Christopher Holmes, Farley Stewart, James Kirk, Conrad Lewis, Judy Carlick-Pearson, Rob Vallee, Jennifer Rice and Gabe Mclean join incumbents Nelson Kinney, Anna Ashley, Gina Garon and Joy Thorkelson in filing papers for a spot on council.

On the school board side of things, incumbents Terri-Lynne Huddlestone, Bart Kuntz, Tina Last, Louisa Sanchez, Leonard Alexcee  and Russel Wiens are being joined by Barb Gruber, Marty Bowles, Brian Johnson and Tanya Boudier as candidates that have filed. Janet Beil is the only candidate to file for the rural trustee position.

In Port Edward, incumbent mayor Dave MacDonald and incumbent councillors Dan Franzen, Murray Kristoff and Knut Bjourndal have filed their election paper work, along with former councillor Christine Mackenzie meaning an election is unlikely in Port Edward as the number of candidates match the number of elected officials.

Meanwhile Masset will have a new mayor in the form of Andrew Merilees, as incumbent mayor Barry Pages filed his papers for council along with Karen Church, Lisa Edwards, Ian Edwards, Natanis Hageman, Bret Johnston and Jason Thompson.
