Dick Carpani for Mayor
Two mayoralty candidates come forward
Two names familiar to Sarnia voters are already registered for November's municipal elections.
Carlos Murray recently added his name to the list of people vying for the mayor's job.
Murray has never held office but has run for the mayor's seat four times previously. Last time around, in 2003, he had the support of 330 voters and placed fourth in a five-way race.
Murray has never altered his campaign position that true democracy can only be achieved if Sarnians are able to vote on key issues over the Internet. He's frequently suggested that longtime mayor Mike Bradley should move on to higher office, either provincially or federally.
First to register for the mayor's race was former city councillor Dick Carpani who threw his hat in the ring in early January.
Carpani was a public school board trustee for nearly 12 years before running for council in 1997. He didn't win that election but was first runner-up, so when Caroline Di Cocco resigned her post to become MPP Carpani was appointed to council.
He went on to win his seat in the 2000 election, but lost in the municipal race of 2003 when he and four other incumbents were turfed.
The city keeps a roster of election registrants for 2006 on its website www.city.sarnia.on.ca.
No one has filed papers for any of the eight councillors' positions.
