Fifteen candidates will vie for a seat on council, including incumbents Chris Good, Jamie (James) Seward, Paul Wyse-Seward and Erralyn Thomas. Also running are: Emmy Manson (Emily Salea), Gary Manson, Charlene Paul, Nick (Nicholas Jay) Seward, Rick (Rodrick) Seward, Eric G. Wesley, Mike (Brian) White, Herman White Jr., Joe White Jr., John L. White and Margaret White.
