May 9th, 2018



A few more people met with the city Clerks who accepted their nomination papers and their deposit and placed their name on the list of people who want to represent the public at city hall or on school boards.

Two of the seven members of Council have yet to file nomination papers: Councillors Craven of ward 1, and Councillor Lancaster of ward 6 have yet to indicate they plan to seek re-election.

Ward 3 Councillor Taylor has said he is leaving politics and will not seek re-election.

The Mayor, Rick Goldring has filed his nomination papers.  Ward 2 Councillor Marianne Meed Ward has filed nomination papers and will run for he Office of Mayor.  Ward 4 Councillor Jack Dennison filed his nomination papers and is actively seeking re-election.

There is a handful of young people with very impressive profiles and experience seeking public office which augers well for the city.  There are also a few with little in the way of experience and not much in the way of talent to bring to the table who have filed nomination papers; we are a democracy and anyone who meets the requirements of the Municipal Act can run for public office.

Wards 2 and 3 are going to have active contests and there might well be an active contest in ward 6

Jack Dennison faces a newcomer in ward 4

There are a few more people who have appointments with the clerk next week

The Gazette will provide this report each week day and show the latest nominations in red. There were no new nominations filed during  the 4th of May

    Well let’s hope that those running against veterans are aware that Craven (if running / re-elected) is rough around the ages and doesn`t score high marks on playing nicely in the sand box. Kudos to Marianne for standing up to the 6-1 optics and giving them a run for their money…Marianne for Mayor!!!!!

    The Citizens of Burlington should remember it was Trustees Andrea Grebenc and Richelle Papin that voted to close Robert Bateman high School. And Trustee Andrea Grebenc also voted to close Lester B Pearson high school.
