Can a chiropractor straighten out Sault Ste. Marie City Council?

Or maybe we need an Algoma Central Railway conductor to keep them on track?

After Wednesday's 4:30 p.m. deadline, Assistant City Clerk Malcolm White (shown) had 15 applications to file for Derik Brandt's vacant Ward 3 Council seat.

Applicants included not one, but two chiropractors (Grace Tridico and Bryan Dumanski), who submitted their applications in the same envelope, White says.

Other wannabes include PUC Telecom general manager Martin Wyant, former Ward 2 Councillor Jody Curran and Bryan Hayes, who finished third in the last Ward 3 race behind Brandt and Councillor Pat Mick.

Here's the list:

J. Brian Babcock 29 Welcome Avenue Certified Human Resources Professional Jody Curran 12 Summit Ward 2 Councillor, 1997-2000
