Council hopeful holds penny poll

A candidate in the municipal election is asking the public to help him decide whether to run for the mayor’s role or a councillor position.

One potential candidate in the November municipal election is asking the public to help him decide whether to run for the mayor’s role or a councillor position.

Christopher Boisvert-Gilman said he plans to run in the municipal election on Nov. 15, but he has not decided whether to run as a councillor candidate or a mayoral candidate.

To help him decide, he has set up a penny poll, using two coin banks. His poll asks people if they would like to retire the mayor or the councillors.

“I felt there was a need to hear from the people directly,” he said. When his poll reaches 500 votes, he will decide whether to file papers to run as a mayoral or councillor candidate.

He estimates more than 250 people have participated in his poll.
