Hello and welcome to our municipal election coverage.
The campaigns for town and township government seats promise to be exciting and engaging affairs in most of the communities we cover at HomeTown News. Between now and Oct 22nd, we’re certain you’ll receive a lot of information on your candidates and their platforms, but we thought it would be handy for our readers if we could provide a central source for some details on who’s running and what they wish to accomplish on behalf of their ratepayers.
We created and forwarded a simple questionnaire to all those running for council positions and collected and formatted their responses complete with a picture so you can put a face to the name. We don’t have enough room to provide pages of detail on each, but believe these snapshots will pique your interest and spur you on to do a little more digging on your own. We have provided the basic contact information that candidates either chose to send in or that were listed on municipal websites. As a tip for those voting detectives wishing to learn more, many candidates have set up their own websites or social media pages. Just let your mouse do a little clicking.
If any particular candidate’s profile doesn’t appear in our content it’s either because they chose not to participate or failed to meet reasonable deadlines.
We can’t stress enough the importance of getting out and exercising your right to vote on Oct 22nd. Some of our area communities are making this civic duty more accessible with online ballots and if you’ve ever attended a polling station for any election in the past, you know it can be a great opportunity to connect with neighbours and friends.
