There were two last-minutes surprises today in the race for Nelson city council.
Former councillor Janice Morrison and Jeff Shecter, who ran unsuccessfully in a 1998 by-election, became the 11th and 12th candidates for council.
That’s in addition to three candidates for mayor and ten others for council who we have already told you about.
For council, incumbents Bob Adams and Robin Cherbo are seeking re-election. The other candidates are Michael Dailly, Charles Jeanes, John Paolozzi, Jason Peil, Justin Pelant, Anna Purcell, Brian Shields, and Valerie Warmington, of whom only Jeanes has run before.
Incumbents Candace Batycki, Donna Macdonald, and Paula Kiss are not seeking re-election.
