Full slate for municipal elections

It looks like Clinton's Council and trustee are acclaimed, but Ashcroft, Cache Creek and Lytton will be going to the polls.

Ashcroft and Cache Creek voters will have their choice of candidates for Mayor and Council, while in Clinton it appears the current Mayor and Council will be acclamed. Lytton’s Mayor is unchallenged, but residents will decide who joins her at the Council table.

Most of the Gold Trail trustees are unchallenged, but Ashcroft will vote for one of two candidates running for the same position.

Candidates have until Oct. 17 to withdraw from election without penalty. General Election Day is Nov. 15.

The Journal will carry bios of all the candidates in the Oct. 30 issue, and the Ashcroft Chamber of Commerce is hosting an All Candidates Forum on Wed., Oct. 29 at 7 pm in the high school gym.
