Two Candidates seek Vacant Westville Town Council Seat

There are two candidates in the running for a vacant seat on Westville Town Council. Tuesday was the deadline for candidates to file their nomination papers.

One the candidates is not a surprise, former Pictou East MLA Clarrie MacKinnon, who indicated last month he would run. Also on the ballot will be Betty Jean Sutherland.

The by-election will be held on December 14th; polls will be open from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. There will also be two advance polls on December 7th and 10th from 12 noon to 8 p.m.

The seat became vacant after former councillor Lennie White resigned to run for Mayor. White was elected Mayor by acclamation.
