How the 2018 Election looks for Carberry & NCL

posted Sep 24, 2018, 9:28 AM by Kathy Carr
With the nomination deadline now closed, we can tell you who will be running in the October 24 Municipal Election. 
For the Town of Car­berry, all the candidates that filled out nomination forms were acclaimed and there will be three new faces around the council table for the next four years. The new Town of Carberry Coun­cil will be comprised of Mayor, Stuart Olmstead and Coun­cillors, John Ander­son, Ray Muir­head, Mike Sudak and Matthew Tolton.
For the Municipality of North Cypress-Lang­ford, there were some acclamations, but there will also be a few races as well. 
Here is what the election situation looks like for NCL. Council members that were acclaimed are Bob Adriaansen for Reeve and Councillors Harold Tolton for Ward Two, Fred Jackson for Ward Three and Ray Drayson for Ward Five. 
In Ward One, David Blair, Clyde McCallum and Norm Campbell will be vying for the top spot. In Ward Four, Dallas Olmstead will be running against Don Hockin and in Ward Six, Malcolm Murray will be running against incumbent Gerond Davidson.
For the Beautiful Plains School Division School Trustees where the dividing line is one line north of Brookdale, Lavern Biehn, Amanda-Rose Bourget, Richard Manns and John Mc­Neily will be running to represent Ward One – Carberry Area. In Ward Two – Neepawa Area, Kathleen Guillas, Garth Hun­ter and Wendy Men­zies were acclaimed. Ward Two actually has four spots available, so the process to fill the vacant role in that Ward will be determined by the new Board of Trustees after the election on October 24.
With the nomination process now over, now begins the next process of meeting the candidates and learning about why they think they are the best person for the job, along with what they will bring to the council table. Please watch for articles on the council candidates in future issues of The Carberry News-Express.
On a side note though, the current councils would like to remind all the residents to be extra vigilant at this time of year and want to echo the words of the RCMP from the last council report which were: Always lock up when you leave your vehicle. 
Lately the vehicle theft that they have seen, have not been due to hot wiring, but from people leaving their keys in their vehicles. So please, always lock your vehicle when you leave. Also, record the serial numbers of all electronic or other equipment in your house. They have recovered lots of electronic equipment and other items, but they can’t return, because they can’t be properly identified.
