All Candidates Night Audio - September 5, 2018 - Now on Youtube

Electors are invited to come out and ask questions of the candidates to help with their voting decisions.  Based on the current climate of the community, there is an opportunity to pose anonymous questions, the questions will be vetted to ensure they are appropriate for discussion by an experienced facilitator.  Send any questions to allcandidatesnight@gmail.com, drop them off in the outdoor mail box, or mail them to the municipal office anonimously.  If your question is not asked by someone at the event, it will be asked by the facilitator at the end of the meeting. 

Other than assisting with logistics, municipal employees will not be involved in any way with this process.  Please pose any questions to Cheryl Jennings and/or Jim Gibson at the above email address.

Thank you for your interest in your community.

Nominations for the Municipal Elections to be held Monday, October 22, 2018 will open May 1, 2018.  2018 Nomination Notice 

NOTICE: New in 2018 - Candidates in municipalities with over 4,000 electors are required to obtain endorsement by providing signatures of 25 elegible electors when submitting their Nomination papers.  As Head, Clara & Maria has significantly fewer electors; this requirement is not necessary.  This was changed on April 3, 2018 with O. Reg. 101/97.
We strive for accuracy but must reiterate that the responsiblity for meeting all your legislated requirements is that of the candidate.  Please refer to the legislation or your own legal counsel or accountant for specifics to your campaign.  Please report errors or omissions to municipal staff.

Candidate Q & A

In order to ensure that all candidates receive the same information, if a question is posed of municipal staff, the question and answer will be posted on this page.  No question is a bad question if you don't know the answer.  It could cost you your seat.
