CRD board election nomination packages available starting July 27

Nomination packages for anyone wanting to run in the local government election as a regional district director will be made available beginning July 27.

Packages will be accessible on the CRD website and at the CRD offices in Williams Lake, Quesnel and 100 Mile House.

When the Tribune canvassed the directors in February, the majority said they planned to seek re-election.

The exceptions were Tedd Armstrong in Area A, Jerry Bruce in Area B, Joan Sorley in Area F and former Wells Mayor Robin Sharpe who all said they would not be running again.

Area D director Steve Forseth, announced in June he plans to run again.

When contacted Friday, Area E director Angie Delainey, who won the byelection in April to replace the late Byron Kemp confirmed she plans to seek re-election, while Area J director Roger William said he has not made a decision either way yet.

The nomination period for candidates, begins at 9 a.m. on Sept. 4, 2018 and closes at 4 p.m. on Sept. 14, 2018.

To qualify candidates must be a Canadian citizen, 18 years of age or older, a resident of B.C. for at least six months immediately before the day nomination papers are filed; and not disqualified by the Local Government Act or any other enactment from voting in an election in British Columbia or from being nominated for, being elected to, or holding office.

General voting day for the local general election is on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2018.

Advance polling opportunities will be on Oct. 10 and Oct. 15, 2018.

Additional special voting opportunities may be announced and polling station locations will be confirmed closer to the date.
