Candidate for the ward 1 seat gets papers into the Clerk's office and yet another name for the ward 2 council seat.

What a day it was.

A second member of council opts for a pension cheque and new names pop faster than you can say Jack Rabbit.

A name with credibility and depth is said to be making a trip to the Clerk’s office to register as a candidate for the ward 2 seat. Sources tell the Gazette that Roland Tanner, former president of the Burlington provincial Liberals at one point, is going to register his nomination papers for Ward 2 on Monday.

Rene Papin got his nomination papers for the ward 1 seat in faster than we thought was possible. Did he have advance notice?

Papin has been a Conservative for as long as we can remember – he was hoping to be the candidate for the provincial seat but the constituency wouldn’t have him and, being the good party member he is, – he didn’t push for the nomination. He should have.

A loyal reader who gets us via Facebook said: “Wow, new councillors for Wards 1, 2 and 3. Perhaps a new mayor. Perhaps changes in wards 4, 5 and 6.

The newest nominations are shown in red.

Can we expect to see any withdraws as the field in some wards thickens?

Will the expected Tanner nomination in ward 2 help the school board trustee make a decision ?

    I have to say I agree 100% with D Duck this time.

    We need to just get new blood and start over. The current council spends way too much money for consultants. Their official plan stinks. I do not even go downtown anymore.

    Time for an over haul at City Hall.

    Never good when the city council maybe populated with some individuals who have strong political associations.

    I would rather have a keen neophyte who quickly learns the ropes than a well versed politic-type who thinks they know the ropes.

    This was touched upon in a prior thread about 2 months ago.
