Over in the Rural Municipality of Dauphin the reeve’s chair is being sought by two candidates in Ernie Sirski and Tom Gibbs.

RM voters will have some choices to make when it comes to filling the council table with Todd Boguski, David Johnson, John Bremner, Ken Shewchuk, Midge Sametz, Ken Plustwa, Ron Ryz, Jarri Thompson and Wilf Katchurowski all seeking a seat.
