By the end of the second day of nominations, six city council candidates have been confirmed to run for the Oct. 25 municipal election.

Five of them are familiar faces in the ring of Sudbury municipal politics.

Councillors Jacques Barbeau, Joe Cimino and Doug Craig have entered their names to run for City Council.
Former councillor Mike Petryna has also sent in his nomination.

Petryna was in power in Ward 11 until he lost the last election to Janet Gasparini by more than 900 votes.

Cimino is currently the councillor for Ward 1, Barbeau for Ward 2 and Craig for Ward 9.

Another candidate is Dave Kilgour. The former mayor of Capreol lost the battle for Ward 7 in the 2006 municipal election to Russ Thompson. Kilgour lost by roughly 400 votes, finishing with 1,811 to Thompson’s 2,264.

The sixth candidate announced is Jeff Macintyre. The general manager at the Laughing Buddha, a restaurant located downtown, is the least politically seasoned candidate, so far.

He will run in Ward 12, where Joscelyne Landry-Altmann is currently councillor.

People interested in running for public office have until Sept. 10, at 2 p.m., to submit their nomination forms.

Eligible residents can run for the position of mayor, ward councillor or school board trustee.
