Wayne Baldwin, former White Rock city administrator, has announced he will run for mayor in the upcoming municipal election Nov. 19.

Baldwin said he had originally planned to run as a councillor, until he learned that Mayor Catherine Ferguson was not running for another term.

“Her surprise announcement changed the ballgame,” he told Peace Arch News Friday.

“I thought she was good for another term as mayor, and needed a council she could work with. This changes the field and the dynamics.”

Baldwin had announced in August that he was one of the organizers of a new electoral group which would include former councillor Cliff Annable and Brad Forster, husband of former mayor Judy Forster.

It was later announced that they would seek election as independent candidates.

Baldwin said he is running because he has “ever increasing concerns about the viability of White Rock and I see a lot of decisions being made that would take away from that viability,” he said.

By Friday, three people had filed papers for a seat on White Rock city council – Brad Forster, Larry Robinson and Bruce McWilliam. One person, Laurae McNally, has filed for the seat of school trustee.

No one had filed mayoral papers.
