Mayor Jeff Genung will be seeking a second term during the Oct. 18 municipal election.

Genung confirmed the day after the inaugural Mayor's Invitational that his name will be on the ballot.

He wants to continue to build upon the work he has done.

"Cochrane has invested in me for four years. Let me continue to return on that investment for you. Let's not train another person, let's leverage what I've garnered over the last four years in the relationships that I've built."

Genung says he wanted to wait until after the charity tournament to officially talk about his intentions.

"I've always wanted to seek another term. I didn't want to formally announce before the golf tournament. I was really trying to be careful to not make it a political event. We didn't talk politics, there was no campaign out on the course, and we kept it about the benefactors--the Seniors on the Bow, Boys and Girls Club, and Lions Event Centre."

Nominations will continue to be accepted for mayor and council until Sept. 20. 

No members of the current town council have filed papers at this point, but there's plenty of time remaining. 

Seven people have put their names forward for council so far: Kaitlin Chamberlain, Brandon Cruze, Daniel Cunin, Todd Muir, Samantha Nickerson, Paul Singh, and Bruce Townley.
