Holland will not challenge for mayor

Kamloops contractor Stuart Holland has decided he will not run for the mayor’s chair in this fall’s civic election.

He told KTW in the summer he would again run after losing to Ken Christian in the September 2017 byelection.

Family and work are the reasons behind the decision, Holland said from Golden, where he is working to build a new subdivision.

While he is not running for mayor, Holland said he will continue to voice his opinions about council and consider running in the future.

“I’ll keep my hand on the pulse of Kamloops,” he said.

Any sign of a mayor’s race has been slow to take shape, with incumbent Ken Christian challenged only by local philanthropist Bill Turnbull based on nomination papers filed at city hall through Thursday.

Deadline to file is Friday at 4 p.m.
