Voters to choose from 3 candidates in Oct. 23 election; 11 people running for 8 seats on local council
On Oct. 23, voters in Cambridge Bay will choose between the current mayor, a social worker and a government IT specialist as they elect their mayor.
Incumbent Derek Elias, who previously served as deputy mayor of the hamlet when he was elected to council in 2019, is seeking his first full term as mayor.
He was appointed mayor in 2022 to replace Angulalik Pedersen, who resigned in November that year.
Elias said his top priorities as mayor would be “infrastructure growth from the community, housing, and community health and wellness.”
