By-election coming in Port Clements

Port Clements will be holding a by-election for a seat on council within the next few months, possibly early September, mayor Cory Delves told citizens at a public meeting last Tuesday (May 23).
Mr. Delves encouraged anyone interested to think seriously about putting their names forward.
“I stepped up to the plate,” he said, referring to his decision to run in last November’s municipal election. “I encourage anyone else to do so.”
Councillor Derek Hoenen, who was first elected to council six months ago, has not yet formally resigned, but he will be moving off the islands in mid-June.
Chief administrative officer Terry McMullon said that once the resignation is received, council will select a returning officer and set an election date.
Next council meeting is June 5.
