At least two people will challenge incumbent Greg Lay for the mayor’s chair in Kaslo.
Former mayor and perennial candidate Pat Mackle and local business owner Teresa May have both thrown their names in the ring.
Lay is seeking his second term as mayor, having previously served as councillor.
Five candidates have also filed papers so far for councillor, including incumbent Molly Leathwood and former mayor Jim Holland.
The other candidates are Jill Braley, who ran unsuccessfully in 2008, Mel Bryce, and Rob Lang.
