The nomination period for the 2014 municipal election closed on Friday afternoon and Kimberley now has a final picture of who is running, and for what.
For Mayor, it’s incumbent Ron McRae, a two time Mayor of Kimberley, seeking re-election. He will be challenged by one-term Councillor Don McCormick, and a last minute entrant into the race, Kimberley resident Doug Johnson.
For Council, four incumbents seek re-election. They are Kent Goodwin, Albert Hoglund, Bev Middlebrook and Darryl Oakley.
Also running for council are Brent Bush, who served one term from 2008 to 2011 and did not run in 2011; Darren Close, who ran unsuccessfully in 2011, and newcomers to municipal politics Sandra Roberts and Nigel Kitto.
That’s a much shorter list vying for Council than in 2011 when 15 candidates ran.
For School Board, all three Kimberley trustees are running again, and they are unopposed. Returning to the SD6 board will be Sandra Smail, Betty Lou Barrett and Mac Campbell.
Also running unopposed will be RDEK Area E Director Jane Walter.
