Councillor Karen MacKinnon announced at the City Council meeting Tuesday night she will not seek re-election after serving 16 years on Council. She explains it’s wasn’t an easy decision as being a representative for the City of Flin Flon has been an amazing journey but with the upcoming election she thought since she’s been on Council for such a long time others might want to consider now putting their name forward. She says it’s an important decision and she thinks we need good people to step up to the plate and run and also having said that she also said at the Council meeting for anyone considering running she is open to questions like what you think the job of a City Councillor might be, what it is and the time commitment, etc.
Nominations open on May 1st for Mayor and on June 30th for Councillor and remain open until September 20th with the election being held on October 26th. Forms can be found at City Hall.
