The full list of Town of Ponoka candidates

Who’s running for the Town of Ponoka council? Check out the list here.

With all the candidates running for political office in the Town of Ponoka, the need for a comprehensive list is needed.

Ponoka News has compiled the list of candidates currently featured — one candidate, Greg Nelson, declined an interview with Ponoka News.

The race is a good one this election with two running for mayor; incumbent Rick Bonnett and former mayor Larry Henkelman.

One thing voters may not realize is they do not have to fill out the ballot box completely; they can also just vote for who they feel would best represent the town.

Here’s the updated list so far with links in the headlines with the mayoral candidates listed first:

Ponoka Mayor Rick Bonnett sets sites for second term – Sets sights on second term.

• Larry Henkelman takes the plunge and runs for Ponoka mayor – After four year hiatus.

Councillor Candidates starting with incumbents:

• Maintaining momentum, communication key for Sandra Lyon for Ponoka town council

Carla Prediger looks to stick around for four more years – There’s work to be done.

Ponoka councillor Teri Underhill announces intent to run for second term – Still much to offer.

• Unfinished business part of Marc Yaworski platform for Ponoka town council

• Newcomer to Town of Ponoka politics, Adria Perepelitza, looking to bring a sense of unity

This list comes just before the Ponoka and District Chamber of Commerce candidates forum set for Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. at the Kinsmen Community Centre with a mayoral forum for the first half hour.
