Son of former Capreol mayor, regional chair joins race

The number of candidates competing for a seat on city council is growing, with two more adding their names to the list in recent days.

A familiar name in Capreol is taking a run in Ward 7, where incumbent Dave Kilgour has already filed papers to run for re-election. On Monday, Frank Mazzuca Jr., the son of former Capreol mayor and Regional Chair Frank Mazzuca Sr., registered to run in the ward. He joins Walter Prus, who signed up in January.

And Vincent Lacroix is joining the race in Ward 11, where three candidates have already signed up. Incumbent Terry Kett has yet to say whether he'll be a candidate for the Oct. 27 municipal election.

While only one person has so far filed in each of wards 1-4, the race is also getting crowded in Ward 5. Four candidates have already registered, with incumbent Ron Dupuis expected to vacate his seat on council and take a run at the mayor's job. He'll announce his intentions at a news conference Tuesday morning.

Two candidates have signed up in Ward 6, where incumbent André Rivest has yet to announce his plans, while incumbent Fabio Belli is the only person who has registered to run in Ward 8.

Ward 9, where longtime councillor Doug Craig is expected to retire, is the city's most crowded contest, with seven candidates already in the race. Three candidates are running in Ward 10, where Frances Caldarelli has yet to say whether she's running again.

Newcomer Tay Butt and incumbent Joscelyne Landry-Altmann have signed up to run in Ward 12.
