ESPANOLA—The Manitoulin-Sudbury District Services Board (DSB) has announced the
acclamation of certified candidates to represent territories without municipal organization

The three acclaimed TWMO candidates for Area No. 7 are Bruce Killah (current chair of the
DSB board), David Santi and Denise Portelance-Godin.

The declaration was made by DSB CAO Donna Stewart during the September 21 DSB
meeting, but the candidates were officially certified and acclaimed in a document dated
August 19, 2022, the day nominations for the offices closed.

DSB oversees the elections of unorganized townships on behalf of the Province of Ontario as
those areas do not have town clerks or offices associated with organized municipalities. On
Manitoulin, the areas of Dawson and Robinson are TWMO.
