‘The Kimberley 16′ on display at forumPosted: November 10, 2011
City of Kimberley voters have a slug of candidates to sift through in order to select the six people who will make up their next council Nov. 19.
Sixteen would-be councilors hit the stage at McKim Theatre on Nov. 8 to take part in the Kimberley Chamber of Commerce-hosted all-candidates’ debate.
Running for office are: Melissa Broadhurst, David Chorneyko, Darren Close, Kent Goodwin, Craig Hillman, Albert Hoglund, Jackson Kennedy, Ron Kerr, Don McCormick, Dave McFadden, Bev Middlebrook, Darryl Oakley, Tim Park, Lori Pearson, Laurel Ralston, Jack Ratcliffe and Paddy Weston. Weston and Hoglund are the only two incumbents seeking re-election.
The evening began with a 5:30 p.m. candidates’ market; an opportunity for candidates to meet with voters before the forum.
A 7 p.m. forum followed, led by moderator Ingrid Liepa, who led the evening to its 9 p.m. conclusion.
