Special to The Standard
BROCK: With just over a week to go before the nomination period closes, a pair of candidates have tossed their hats into the ring for this fall's Ward 2 by-election.
The council seat was vacated in June following the resignation of Randy Skinner, amidst an ongoing battle against Parkinson's disease.
To date, Beaverton's George Ranich and Cannington's Dorothy Sanderson - a mayoral challenger in 2014 - have filed nomination papers in the hopes of capturing the seat when Beaverton residents head to the polls on Monday, Sept. 19. As well, an advance polling station will be set up at the Beaverton-Thorah Community Centre on Saturday, Sept. 10, as well as at the Municipal Administration Building in Cannington on Sept. 15.
The by-election is open candidates from all areas of Brock Township, and the deadline to file nomination paperwork is scheduled for 2 p.m., on Friday, Aug. 5.
