Unofficial Candidates List for the MD of Bonnyville

No automatic alt text available.


Candidates still have another day to pull out, but it looks like it will be Kalinski versus Sawchuk in succeeding Ed Rondeau as Reeve for the MD of Bonnyville.

The MD has released its list of unofficial candidates for Reeve and council for the upcoming October 16th election. The list is considered unofficial because the listed candidates still have a twenty-four hour period to back out if they so desire. The official finalized list comes out at noon tomorrow.

Barry Kalinski is a familiar face on the MD Council, serving as Councillor for Ward 4 for two terms. Born in the Iron River/ La Corey area, he also works as a farmer and in the logging industry. He will be running against political newcomer Greg Sawchuk, who previously flew search and rescue helicopters for fourteen years and has more recently been serving on the local Co-op’s Board of Governors.

There are six Wards up for grabs as well to make up council. We already know incumbent Mike Krywiak will keep his position as he is running in Ward 3 uncontested. Ward 6 has the largest field right now with five candidates vying for the seat. If you’re an MD resident and not sure what Ward you reside in, reference the map above.
