Polls closed in Nelson

Results for council and school board to come

John Dooley has been elected mayor of Nelson, defeating incument mayor Deb Kozak and candidate Bernie Brown, who is best known around town as Bubbles the Clown.

Dooley, who previously served three three-year terms as Nelson’s mayor and two terms as councillor, ran on addressing what he said is a lack of civic leadership under Kozak.

Kozak campaigned on three main issues: wildfire preparedness, drinking water security, and a consensus vision for the future of Nelson.

Brown said she felt compelled to run, in part because of her disapproval of Kozak and Dooley’s leadership, but also because of the responses she received to a letter she published about mental health in the Star’s Sept. 6 issue.
