[quote=“TheNorthernView”] As of four p.m. on October 1, two people have submitted their papers and put their names forward for the forthcoming municipal election in Prince Rupert.

Gabe McLean has submitted his papers for the position of city councillor, and Bart Kuntz has submitted his papers to seek re-election to the school board.

Good on ya’ Northern View - for following this.

It will be very useful information for those considering running. Hopefully we won’t end up with another cluster f*!k - resulting in the same council elected.

I will watch for updates. Great Idea!!

Thanks. The plan is to provide updates Monday to Friday up to and including October 10 when the nomination period closes, and the updates will come shortly after four p.m. each day.
