A third person has declared their intentions ahead of next Monday’s deadline to let their name stand for October’s municipal election.
Serena Lapointe is making an effort to serve on council in Whitecourt. She joins Dana Kentner and Ray Hilts as those running who don’t already serve on council. Five of the six incumbents in town will return to the ballot. The sixth, Darlene Chartrand, is trying to make the jump to Mayor.
Lapointe, who has lived in Whitecourt for a decade, has worked with the local media over the last five years.
