Race for Countryside Councillor Heats Up

Two candidates have already thrown their hat in the ring to take over as councillor for Countryside district.

As of Wednesday, February 15, Karen Pagratis and Scott Burton had both filed their nomination papers while three former councillors have expressed an interest in joining the race but have yet to officially do so.

Nomination forms are due at the end of March, and the by-election is scheduled to take place on May 15.

City Council made the decision to hold a by-election to fill the vacant seat left by Richard Allen.
