Mike Murray to run for Mayor of Fort St. John

Advertisement

Long time resident Mike Murray officially entered the race for Mayor Tuesday afternoon.  Murray has been a resident of Fort St. John since 1969 and has owned and operated several businesses in the community since that time.

Murray believes there is little public participation in Fort St. John because residents don't believe their vote counts.  One of his biggest concerns with City Hall is the negative vote system.  According to Murray, the City believes anyone who doesn't attend community forums is voting yes in support of the project.

Murray applauds how the city is currently being run, but believes a number of policies need to change.

To date two other people are also running for Mayor, current City Councillors Lori Ackerman and Don Irwin.  Mayor Bruce Lantz hasn't announced if he will seek another term.  Nominations close on Friday at 4 p.m.
