Candiate list getting longer in CS

Announcements from two Central Saanich council hopefuls top up the list of people running

Two announcements from Central Saanich by-election candidates this past week have now topped the list up to four official hopefuls in the two-seat race.

The first to announce his candidacy in the by-election scheduled for April 13 was Christopher Graham, a Central Saanich council veteran who ran for mayor in the last general election. Graham announced his intention to run only days after the resignation of former Councillor Terry Siklenka on Nov. 26. Siklenka moved away, leaving one council seat vacant. The second seat came open when Adam Olsen was nominated to run for the B.C. Green Party.

The second to announce their intention in running in the 2013 by-election was Alicia Cormier, a Peninsula resident since 1969 who raised her family in Central Saanich. Most recently, Cormier has taken on the position of Store Manager at the Salvation Army in Brentwood Bay.

This past week two other people announced their intentions to run in the by-election. Ryan Windsor and James McNulty both announced their candidacy in press releases sent to the Peninsula News Review.

Both previously made bids for seats on council in 2011 but were not elected.

There are also rumblings in the district of two other potential candidates who were not yet confirmed by press time. The deadline for by-election nominees to send in their nomination packages to the district is this Friday, March 8.
