The Town of Delia will hold a by-election for a new councellor on September 3, 2008.
The nominees for the vacancy were announced on August 6. The three candidates are, Wendy Lamarche, Bob Klappe and John Rogers.
“I am excited that we have as many candidates as we do, it is a great sign of democracy and whoever wins will be an asset to this community,” said Delia Mayor Gordon Isaac.
Some of the platforms of the candidates include improving infrastructure, attracting young families to sustain Delia, and paying closer attention to what taxpayers want.
“I am new to politics, but I think there can often be a disconnect between the tax payer and the politician, and improving on that should be a priority,” said candidate John Rogers.
Candidate Wendy Larmache says, “We need to attract more young families to Delia, if we do not have young families, the school dies, then the village dies. We need a new generation to keep our community alive.”
