Bruce Lantz kicked off his mayoral campaign on the evening of October 23rd with a celebration at local cafe Whole Wheat & Honey.
In his speech to the 50 people present, Lantz laid out his campaign plan, which centres around moving forward in uncertain economic times, reducing crime, listening to the public’s needs and stopping what he calls the "spending spiral" of the current mayor and council.
The evening included entertainment by local musician Dayna Manning. Some prominent locals were in attendance, including Salvation Army captain Ben Lippers, former mayor Steve Thorlakson, councillor candidate Theresa Mucci-Rodgers, former Doig River chief Gary Oker and Councillor Dan Davies, who said he was "just there to listen to the platform."
