The list of mayoral candidates is filling up, more than 4 months before the municipal election.
Former mayor John Douglas and current mayor Mike Ruttan will now be joined on the ballot by Shari Minions.
The 30 year old real estate agent and current city councillor says she’s not running because she’s opposed to the current mayor, but because she has a different vision.
Minions said big industry is not coming back and the city needs to reclaim prime waterfront lands for new projects so Port Alberni can move forward.
Only one person has announced they’re running for council so far – 23 year old Bulldogs director of business operations Tali Campbell has declared his intentions to run in the October 20th election.
