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.
