Residents interested in running for municipal office this fall will have a chance to learn about the municipal election next month.

That’s because an information session is being held for candidates and third party advertisers. The workshop is a joint-collaboration between Madawaska Valley, Killaloe, Hagarty and Richards and Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan Townships.

The session is free to attend, and will give information about nominations and eligibility, as well as general campaigning rules and election finances.

The workshop is being held at the Paul J. Yakabuski Community Centre in Barry’s Bay on July 5th at 6:30pm, while the deadline to file election nomination papers is July 27th.

The Municipal Election is October 22nd.
