Four candidates compete for vacant seat on Nelson City Council

Nicole Charlwood, Daniel Nolan, Brenton Raby and Joshua Wapp have all submitted nomination papers as candidates for the City of Nelson By-election in March.

Chief Election Officer for the City of Nelson, Sarah Winton, announced Friday that four candidates have successfully completed the nomination process for the empty seat on council created by the resignation of Brittny Anderson.

Winton said in a media release that Nicole Charlwood, Daniel Nolan, Brenton Raby and Joshua Wapp have all submitted nomination papers as candidates for the City of Nelson By-election in March.

Former councilor Anderson submitted her formal resignation on Monday, December 14th, 2020.

Anderson, running under the NDP banner, won the MLA seat for Nelson-Creston in the Provincial Election in October 2020.
