The public is invited to attend a Candidates’ Forum to hear from the people running for Belfast City Council. The forum will be on Monday, October 22, starting at 7 p.m. at the Belfast Boathouse, 34 Commercial Street.
Incumbent Councilor Mary Mortier is being opposed by write-in challenger Ellie Daniels for Ward 1.
Joanne Moesswilde is on the ballot, challenging incumbent Councilor Neal Harkness in Ward 2.
For the open seat in Ward 5, Jim Merkel is a write-in candidate running against Paul Dean, who is on the ballot.
Belfast voters elect councilors for ALL wards, not just for the ward in which they reside.
