Election profiles, forums

The Gazette will be publishing profiles in the next two issues.

The 2014 civic election is less than four weeks away and there are many candidates for voters to research in that short time.

The Gazette will be publishing profiles in the next two issues, written by the candidates themselves. Contenders for City of Grand Forks mayor, Area D representative and School District 51 trustees will be featured Oct. 29; city councillor profiles will be published Nov. 5.

Each profile will be featured on the Gazette’s website ( HYPERLINK “http://www.grandforksgazette.ca” www.grandforksgazette.ca), under the “Election 2014” tab.

The Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce is hosting forums tonight (Wednesday) for school trustee and city councilor candidates, and Wednesday, Nov. 5 for mayoral and Area D candidates.

Advance polls will be held Wednesday, Nov. 5 and Wednesday, Nov. 12 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. at the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary board room.

General voting will be held Saturday, Nov. 15 from 8 a.m. – 8 p.m. at Perley Elementary school.

There will also be special voting opportunities on Nov. 15 at Phoenix Manor Retirement Home, Boundary Lodge Assisted Living, Silver Kettle Village, and Boundary Hospital/Hardy View Lodge/Cottages.

City of Grand Forks voters will also be asked a non-binding referendum question: “Are you in support of a deer cull as a deer management option in Grand Forks?”
