Spallumcheen voters will have a mayor and council to choose during the Nov. 19 municipal election.

Incumbent councillors Dave Brew and Janice Brown have declared their intentions to vacate their council seats and run for mayor.

The winner will replace Will Hansma, who decided not to seek a fifth term as mayor to devote more time to his business interests.

Voters will have to pick six councillors from eight who have let their names stand.

Incumbents Christine Fraser, Todd York and Andrew Casson will be challenged for a seat by former councillor Carolyn Farris, as well as Tom Boeve, Rachael Ganson, Ed Hanoski and Joe Van Tienhoven.

Incumbent Ralph Leyenhorst is not seeking re-election.
