White Rock council will have at least two new faces following the Nov. 15 election.

Election 2014: Dozens nominated for White Rock/Surrey councils

Nominations for city council closed at 4 p.m. today; residents can vote for their leaders on Nov. 15.

The race to run for office in White Rock and Surrey has officially closed, and more than a dozen hopefuls have thrown their hats into each city’s political ring.

The only uncontested race is for White Rock’s seat on the Surrey school board. Longtime trustee Laurae McNally, the sole nominee, is to be acclaimed next Monday (Oct. 20).

While Surrey council and trustee nominees were still being tabulated at Peace Arch News’ early long-weekend deadline at 4 p.m. Friday – as nominations closed – White Rock’s candidates were set.

It’s a two-man run for White Rock’s mayor’s chair. Resident David Bradshaw submitted his nomination package on Thursday, in a quest to unseat incumbent Wayne Baldwin, who is wrapping up his first term in the chair.

On the councillor side, 17 hopefuls are vying for six seats: Cliff Annable, Al Campbell, David Chesney, Helen Fathers, Doug Hart, Ross Haugland, Mike Hornak, Sheila Hunter-Tubic, Megan Knight, Bill Lawrence, Dennis Lypka, Grant Meyer, Pattie Petrala, Darcy Sangster, Lynne Sinclair, Cary van Zanten and Margaret Woods.

Coun. Louise Hutchinson did not file papers by nomination deadline.

In Surrey, candidates who had filed nomination papers in Surrey before PAN press time included mayoral hopefuls Vikram Bajwa, John Edwards, Linda Hepner, Doug McCallum,  Barinder Rasode, Grant Rice and John Wolanski.

Running for the eight councillor seats are: Maz Artang, Saira Aujla, Merv Bayda, Tanvir Bhupal, Cliff Blair, Mike Bose, Darlene Bowyer, Obi Canuel, Narima Dela Cruz, Nav Dhanoya, Jas Dhillon, Fiona Dionne, Kal Dosanjh, Rita Elvins, Shawn Francis, Stephen Gammer, Touraj Ghanbar-zadeh, Rina Gill, Tom Gill, Laurie Guerra, Bruce Hayne, Gary Hoffman, Vera LeFranc, Brenda Locke, Mary Martin, Jim McMurtry, Martin Rooney, Rick Scorcese, Beau Simpson, Mike Starchuk, Barbara Steele, Justin Thind, Judy Villeneuve, Dave Woods and Brian Young.

Surrey School Board candidates for six trustee positions include: Terry Allen, Balraj Atwal, Rayman Bhuller, Charlene Dobie, Patricia Enair, Sikandar Hayat, Bob Holmes, Nicole Joliet, Laurie Larsen, Niovi Patskicakis, Kirsty Peterson, Bal Sabharwal, Sara Sharma, Jonathan Silveira, Julie Tapley, Garry Thind, Gary Tymoschuk and Shawn Wilson.

The election is to be held Saturday, Nov. 15.
