“Due to personal and family reasons, I have withdrawn my nomination for mayor,” he told The Mirror. “I believe the present mayor and I can again work well together.”

For council, incumbent Barb Smith has submitted her nomination, while Raymond Johnston says he intends to run for re-election. Colleen Evans would not indicate her intentions when asked.

Former councillor Donna White has submitted her papers for a council seat, making her the first official challenger for a seat not currently on council. Michetti told The Mirror previously she expects Marlene Hiebert will run for a seat on council.
