A list of who's running in the race.

The municipal election in Tumbler Ridge is shaping up to be a lively one with nine names officially submitted a week ahead of the deadline — and only two so far are incumbents.

Incumbent Mayor Don McPherson has started his bid for re-election, and has three challengers — Jerrilyn Schembri, Garret Golhof, and Keith Bertrand.

For council, newcomers Monty Hendrickson, Bernie Lehmann, Curtis Miedzinski, and Chris Norbury have submitted their papers for a bid for a seat. 

Of the incumbents, only Darryl Krakowka has put the gears in motion for a re-election bid so far. 

Councillor Will Howe told the Mirror previously he was considering a mayoral run, but was “not sure,” while Councillors Helen Scott and Joanne Kirby said previously they were undecided.
