And they’re off! Surrey civic candidates unveiled

Eight candidates for mayor have emerged in the running for the Nov. 19 election.

Seven people are trying to put Mayor Dianne Watts out of work this year, as seven candidates added their names to the mayoralty list for this coming civic election.

The nominations are closed for this year’s civic election, and all the candidates are registered.

There was a late buzz around the city clerk’s office at city hall Friday afternoon as candidates rushed to file their final paperwork.

Seven candidates have emerged to take a run at Watts, who has enjoyed strong popularity ratings.

There are also 27 candidates for council and 14 for school trustee.
