After a few busy days at city hall’s election office early last week, it seems that nominations have stalled out in the local municipal election. Election officers for the city of Fort St. John haven’t received any nomination papers since last Thursday, when incumbent mayor Jim Eglinski and incumbent councillor Bruce Christenson filed their papers. The two were the last incumbents to file, meaning every member of the current council has declared their candidacy in this race. Political newcomers Theresa Mucci-Rodgers and Trevor Bolin have also filed their papers for the position of councillor. No one has yet filed to run against incumbent mayor Jim Eglinski. Nominations close in just under a week.
