One year after byelection win, councillor decides to run again

Sheryl Armstrong announces she will look to be re-elected to Nanaimo city council

After serving on city council for one year, Coun. Sheryl Armstrong has decided she wants to try for another term.

Armstrong, who won a byelection last July to join City of Nanaimo council, has announced she intends to run again in this fall’s local government election.

Armstrong said she hopes people will judge her on what she’s done, not just what council as a whole has done.

“You hear a lot of negative stuff, you hear positive…” she said. “I think people feel that we need to clean house and that could be me as well. Hopefully not, but that’s a possibility.”
