It’s official, Castlegar will be voting in a new city councillor  in a Sept.-14 byelection, council heard at a special meeting Wednesday night. This, after the resignation of former councillor Russ Hearne, as he pursues career opportunities in Kelowna.

As far as candidates go, former Castlegar councillor Kirk Duff has confirmed he will be running, as has Element owner Florio Vassilakakis and Tyler Maddocks, a contender in our last municipal election. Meagan Salekin has indicated she’s strongly considering the idea, but hasn’t yet confirmed her candidacy.

If you know of anyone else who is running, please contact The Source – we’ll be running profiles of the candidates.

Nomination papers can be picked up at City Hall starting July 11 and papers must be filed between 9 a.m. July 30 and 4 p.m. on Aug. 9.
