Commission Election - June 4th
Commissioners' three year terms are staggered, so every year at least one Commissioner's term is up for election.
This year there are two positions available. Nomination papers are available from the Clerk at the Village Hall and must be returned to the Clerk by May 25th. To be eligible to run as commissioner, you must live inside the village limits, be over 18 and a Canadian citizen. Commissioners are volunteers who are willing to give up a little bit of time to make the decisions that affect the whole village and for the benefit of the village as a whole. If you are interested in being involved in a very exciting part of the Village of Pugwash's development and growth as a community, pick up your nominating form as soon as possible.
