The interest in running for city council is coming along nicely.

City Clerk Angela Morgan fails to ensure media alerted to Special Council meeting. Her communications people dropped the ball as well.

City Clerk Angela Morgan oversees the rules that apply to the running of the municipal election.

When ward 1 Councillor Rick Craven announced his retirement plans Rene Papin had his nomination plans in the hands of the city Clerk faster than we thought possible.  did Papin have advance notice?

Some Gazette readers are asking – Who is Rene Papin?  He has been looking for opportunities to get elected to something.  Want to know more about Rene – here’s a link.

Marty Staz a real estate agent filed his nomination paper yesterday.  Other than that – there is nothing knew.

People are wondering when the school board trustee for wards 1 & 2 is going to make her intentions known.  Leah Reynolds was expected to run for the ward 2 city council seat – but that race is getting nice and busy – four candidates have filed papers – some solid choices amongst the four.

As of the close of business at city hall yesterday the following are the people running for office.  They have until Friday, July 27, 2018, at 2:00 p.m to withdraw should they look at the list of people running for the office they want is something they cannot overcome.

The Gazette will begin reporting on the city council and school board candidates once the provincial election has taken place on June 7th

    Is there any one running for Ward 1 that is committed to the marina? To date many councilors /candidates for council are against supporting the marina. This is such a narrow-minded view in my opinion. If only the majority interests are served we will live in a world without many of the best things in life. Also if we see the water front as only belonging to Burlington we are denying those whole live inland the benefits of the lake. That is so selfish.

    The city spent millions on a pier that does little but will eventually require millions to maintain yet nothing for a real long term harbour. We are the only community on the north shore of Lake Ontario that does not have a permanent harbour yet our shoreline is over twenty kilometers long.
