Several names have been added to the candidate’s list for councillor and Mayor along with Trustee positions for two school boards.

Andy Martens is the latest to add his name to the list. Martens made if official at noon Monday that he is in the running for councillor for Ward 1. Making it a three way race for that ward incumbents, Steve Butland and Paul Christian are seeking re-election.

Wanda McQueen, a former ADSB School Trustee is seeking a seat in Ward 6 joining incumbent Joe Krmpotich and former Ward 6 councillor Ozzie Grandinetti and chiropractor Bryan Dumanski.

We will definitely see new faces in Ward 3. Both incumbents, Pat Mick and Brian Watkins are not seeking re-election. David Poluck joins Matthew Shoemaker, Luke Macmichael, Judy Hupponen and Tim Thibault.

Ward 4 will see a race between , Luke Dufour and both incumbents, Lou Turco and Rick Niro so far.

Ward 5 could be one of the most interesting races with former Ward 5 seat holder David Celetti challenging Frank Fata and Marchi Bruni.
