Over the past couple of months, we have had a chance to meet and learn about many of the candidates that have put their names forward for the upcoming municipal election on October 22.  Through the more formal debates, meet and greets, and public events that have taken place, both incumbents and hopefuls have had the opportunity to get their platforms out in front of the voters in their respective communities.  The run up to the election over the next two weeks will no doubt see and hear the reasons why you should elect these individuals. … Read More »
