With less than one month left until Nelson elects its new local government, candidates are making their case for why they are right for the position of mayor.

In a series of interviews with KCR News, candidates Tom Prior, Janice Morrison, incumbent Mayor John Dooley, and John Buffrey share more on their personal, political and professional background, expand on the issues they see in the city, and give their best argument for why they should receive the vote on Oct. 15.

If Dooley, 73, would get reelected, he would become the longest serving mayor in the city's history. He won his first mayoral campaign in 2005 and was then re-elected mayor in 2008 and 2011.

Candidate Mike Zeabin did not return a request from KCR News for an interview.
