Monday, September 18 was Nomination Day in Crowsnest Pass for the municipal elections.

One nomination for Mayor was received from the municipality’s current mayor, Blair Painter, by the end of the nomination acceptance period. Therefore, Mayor Painter has been elected by acclamation to the Office of Mayor.

“I would like to thank the residents of the CNP for their confidence to put me in the Mayor’s Office for another four years,” said Mayor Painter. “I have really enjoyed the previous term and have met a lot of people while out supporting and promoting our community. The last four years have been very rewarding for me and I’m really looking forward to another productive term. I am thankful that I was able to be part of an amazing team with our last Council and look forward to building another team to serve our community and improve the CNP.”

The unofficial candidate list for Office of Councillor as of 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 was Marlene Anctil, Dave Filipuzzi, Doreen Glavin, Gord Lundy, Leslie McCallum, Lisa Sygutek and Dean Ward. Anctil, Filipuzzi, Glavin and Ward served on Council the previous term. Former Councillors Shar Cartwright and Bill Kovach did not submit nomination papers for this term.

The municipality needed to receive at least six nominations for the Office of Councillor. By the end of the nomination acceptance period on September 18, only five nominations were submitted. Therefore, the Returning Officer had accepted nominations on Tuesday, September 19.
“We were hoping that people would step forward, but I see it in a positive light,” says Mayor Painter. “I don’t think that we should be disconcerted that no one has put their name forward. If things were not going in the right direction and our community was not happy, I’m sure that we would see an influx of more people putting their name up. It is reassuring that our present Council is keeping everybody happy.”

Nominees have until noon on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 to withdraw their application.
