Expect at least three new councillors at Duncan city hall after Nov. 19

At least three new city councillors will help run Duncan city hall after the Nov. 19 civic election.

Friday’s deadline for nomination papers showed nine new candidates facing three current councillors seeking another three-year term on Duncan’s six-member council.

In the mayorality race, Councillor Paul Fletcher is challenging Mayor Phil Kent.

Councillors Ray Cadorette and Jesse Winfrey did not file nomination papers.

Incumbent councillors on the ballot will include Joe Thorne, Sharon Jackson and Tom Duncan.

Newcomers — all with no political experience officially listed — include Dana Arthurs, Cassandra Barfield, Martin Barker, Michelle Bell, Bob Brooke, Ranjit Dhami, Jen Holden, Judy Stafford and Michelle Staples.

The new council will be sworn in during the city’s Dec. 5 inaugural ceremony at city chambers.
