Candidates come out of the woodwork



As the clock ticks down to the end of the nomination period for the coming municipal election, four people have come forward so far on deadline day.

Kathy Cottingham of Tilbury filed her papers to run for a spot on council, representing West Kent, Ward 1.

William Arends, a former mayoral candidate, filed to run for council in Wallaceburg, Ward 5.

Meanwhile, two people filed to run for a trustee seat on the Lambton-Kent District School board, Bruce Steen and Shannon Sasseville.

Cottingham is going up against incumbent Bryon Fluker, as well as Mark Authier, Dan Gelinas and Rudy Toews in the hunt for two council seats in West Kent.

Arends faces off against Carmen McGregor, incumbents Sheldon Parsons and Jeff Wesley.

Steen and Sasseville join incumbents Dave Macko and Ruth Ann Dodman vying for two seats on the board representing Chatham, Ward 6.
