UXBRIDGE: It was a busy week for candidates in the upcoming municipal election last week, as four additional candidates filed nomination papers with the township's clerks department.
Pam Beach and Sally Brady each filed papers seeking election in Ward 1, which has been represented by Bev Northeast since 1991. Councillor Northeast has yet to declare wether she will again seek re-election in the October 27 election.
As well, Joy Whalen became the first candidate to register for the Ward 5 seat, which has been held by Gord Highet since 2006. Councillor Highet has yet to declare his intentions for the municipal election.
Additionally, Kathy LeFort is seeking to retain her seat at the Durham Catholic District School Board as the trustee Scugog, Uxbridge and Brock. The office of Regional Councillor and Ward 4 Councillor remain the only positions on Uxbridge council without any candidates as of The Standard's press time.
Former Mayor Bob Shepherd was the first to announce his candidacy, and is seeking to return to council's top job after being defeated by Gerri Lynn O'Connor in 2010. Ward 2 Councillor Pat Molloy is the lone incumbent councillor to formally declare his intentions to seek re-election.
