Councillors undecided about running

  • Sep. 16, 2011 10:00 a.m.

Council members in Masset and Port Clements haven’t made up their minds whether to run again in the municipal elections that will be held this November. In Masset Monday night (Sept. 12), resident Harold White asked the four council members who would be running for office again. Mayor Barry Pages, councillor Andrew Merilees and councillor Buck Grosse all said they have not yet decided. Councillor Ian Edwards said he probably won’t be running because he doesn’t feel he has the time to devote to the job. Natanis Hageman, a Masset resident who was at the meeting, said she definitely plans to run for a councillor position. In Port Clements, acting mayor Wally Cheer said he’s not sure whether he will run, councillor Greg Stewart said he hasn’t decided, councillor Ian Gould said he will probably wait and see who else is running before making a decision, and councillor Cam Traplin said he had “no comment”. Nominations for all the elected municipal and school board positions on the islands open on Oct. 4 and close Oct. 14, with the election to be held Nov. 19. Nomination packages are now available at all the village offices.
