Podmore not seeking re-election in November

Town of Sidney: Current Sidney Town Councillor Kenny Podmore won’t seek re-election in the fall.

Current Sidney Town Councillor Kenny Podmore announced this week that he won’t be seeking re-election in November’s municipal election.

“This has been a very difficult decision for me to make, a decision that my wife Anita and I have made together,” Podmore said in an email to the Peninsula News Review this week.

“It is a very emotional time for me giving up my position as a councillor for this amazing town.”

Podmore was elected to council in 2008.

Podmore is also Sidney’s official Town Crier, a title he plans to uphold, he said.
