HUMBOLDT — Following the last municipal election, Harley Bentley said he could feel the support he got from the residents of Humboldt.
There are people who want him to be mayor, he said, so he will continue to show his dedication to Humboldt by running again for the coveted seat.
With so many former councillors leaving the council table, there is going to be a wealth of ideas coming for the future with many new names on the ballot, he said. While they need to continue the work that has already been done, Bentley said he is excited for the new things coming from this upcoming council.
“There's going to be a lot of new ideas come up on the table. I look forward to working with new councillors and getting some other things on the agenda.”
Among these new ideas are some safety issues that have been on Bentley’s mind for a while, he said.
“Seeing the developments that have happened and ones that have been pushed aside, there’s a lot of new things that need to be brought to the table. That's my main concern.”
Bentley has been a resident of Humboldt for the last 25 years, he said, and he feels he knows where Humboldt has come from and where it is going.
