DAWSON CREEK -- The Peace River Region District have officially released the list of candidates for the Area C by-election next month. 

Suzanne Haab and Brad Sperling will go head-to-head once again in the race for the Peace River Regional District’s Area C Director role.

Sperling was narrowly defeated by Haab in the October election, with a difference of just three votes.

However, the Area C election was invalidated by the Supreme Court, which found that ballots had been issued to ineligible voters. The Area C Director position has been vacant since the court’s decision.

A by-election will be held on February 25th. Advanced voting will take place on February 15th and once again on the 22nd.
