Tiny Township residents will have a new mayor and deputy mayor after the Oct. 24 municipal election.

Candidates for the municipal election were registered as of last week, with quite a selection for Tiny residents to choose from.

Departing from the current top seat, Mayor George Cornell will not be seeking re-election in the next term.

David Evans will be looking to fill the role, having been involved in municipal boards and committees for several years.

Tony Mintoff, a former council member and fire chief for the township, has also put his name in for the head position.

The role of deputy mayor will also be open as Steffen Walma steps away from the position this fall.

John Bryant will look to elevate from his current status as a councillor into the role, and has an active background on several committees.

He will be challenged by Sean Miskimins and Stephen Saltsman.

For the three available councillor seats, 10 candidates have officially registered.

Candidates for the role of council members are: Anna Aggio, Dave Brunelle, Ema Canadic, Mario Galluzzo, Kelly Peter Helowka, Stephen McNamara, Erik Schomann, David Sparrock, Steffen Walma, and Gibb Wishart.

Voters will also cast a ballot for trustees for the local school boards.

Tyler Boswell and Robin Talbot will be vying to become trustee of the English-language public school board.

For the French-language public district board, candidates Saveria Caruso and Eric Lapointe will be looking to fill the role.

Michael D’Amelio is the sole candidate for the English-language separate school board.

Claire Thibideau is the lone candidate entered as trustee for the French-language Catholic district board.
