Here’s the April 11 election snapshot, a weekly look at how municipal candidates are distributed across our grand city.
Only 3 new candidates registered this week, the slowest week since nominations opened in January. (Here’s the weekly totals, from the beginning: 59, 16, 5, 10, 6, 7, 6, 7, 9, 4, 7, 6, 3)
Ward 27 increased its lead to 13 candidates, far ahead of second place Ward 19. Ward 27 is a race to replace retiring Councillor Kyle Rae, and Ward 19 was vacated by Joe Pantalone who is running for Mayor instead.
Stay tuned for some interesting new downtown nominations likely to happen in the next couple of weeks….
