Portage la Prairie’s senior election official (SEO) says the run-up to the Oct. 24 municipal election has so far been without fanfare.
Diane Van Aert, election SEO for both the civic and school board elections, said on July 18 only one person has declared candidacy.
City Coun. Ryan Espey has filed his nomination papers in an effort to return to city council for a third term.
“It’s been fairly quiet,” Van Aert said. “If you are passionate about your community and feel this is how you can make a difference, come and get your package.”
