Former Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman is looking to re-enter city politics, but he won’t be campaigning for his old seat.
Banman is running for council in this fall’s municipal election, according to nomination documents posted online Friday morning.
Banman served as Abbotsford’s mayor between 2011 and 2014. He was narrowly defeated four years ago by Henry Braun, with the two candidates separated by less than 600 votes.
The News has yet to receive an announcement from Banman, who is the 17th person to submit papers to run for council. Friday marks the end of the nomination period, with a declaration of the candidates running for office expected at 4 p.m.
More to come.
