By-Election Update

There are currently three candidates in the running for the Ward 7 by-election. They are Audrey Holden,  Brian Junkin, and Gail Thomassen. The deadline for nominations is Dec. 10, so we’ll let you know if anyone else throws their hat in the ring. 

Several members of the SPA board met with Brian and Gail to impress upon them the specific concerns of Sturgeon Point. Audry Holden will be coming to visit this coming week for a similar meeting.  

We’ve set up a By-Election page with links to the candidates’ information. We’ll keep this page updated with links to election-related news articles throughout the campaign.  You’ll also find a listing of important election dates.

Important: If you haven’t received a ballot in the mail by January 12 you need to contact the City By-Election Office.

The City of Kawartha Lakes will hold a byelection to fill the councillor’s seat that has been empty since Pete Cziraky succumbed to cancer in September. The election will be conducted through a mail in ballot, so there won’t be any traditional voting stations or a voting day. Ballot kits will be mailed to voters by early January and completed ballots should be dropped in the mail by January 20th. Alternativel,y the ballots can be dropped off at the Bobcaygeon Municipal Service Centre (123 East St W.) or at City Hall (26 Francis St., Lindsay) by January 22.
