At the Flin Flon City Council meeting last night Mayor Cal Huntley announced he has come to a very very difficult decision…..
“20 years in Municipal politics is I think a lot of seniority but there’s still lots to do and I’m going to turn it over to a different crew of people to go forward so I’m going to announce at this meeting that I will not be running for Mayor in the upcoming election, I’m going to take a break from it for a while.”
Two current City Councillors have filed their papers to run for Mayor, Tim Babcock and Leslie Beck. Councillor Bill Hanson will be filing nomination papers for Council. Councillors Karen MacKinnon, Colleeen Arnold and Ken Pawlachuk will not seek re-election. Nominations for Mayor, Council and School Board close on September 20th with Election Day October 26th.
