Kaslo village councillor Suzan Hewat is challenging incumbent Greg Lay for the mayor’s seat in this fall’s civic elections.
Lay has served two terms as mayor and was a councillor before that, while Hewat has served several terms as a councillor. She topped the polls in both 2011 and 2008.
A third candidate is also expected to declare for mayor.
Meanwhile, there are now four candidates for council: incumbent Rob Lang as well as John Addison of WREN Consulting, Louise De Pape of Kaslo Florists, and massage therapist Kellie Knoll.
The nomination deadline is Friday at 4 p.m.
