For myself, Carin and anyone else who needs it, here is a rundown of who exactly is running for Regional Council in Waterloo Region in the upcoming municipal election courtesy of Melissa Bowman of Citified.
With so many current Councillors choosing not to run again, there won’t be a lot of parking votes in familiar places. There are a lot of new things to learn, so lists like these are going to be even more helpful than usual.
Today’s post will focus on who is running for Regional Council this Fall.
Note that only the municipalities (Cambridge, Kitchener, and Waterloo) have representatives directly elected specifically as a regional councillor. The townships (North Dumfries, Wellesley, Wilmot, and Woolwich) are automatically represented by their mayor.
I have listed all of the candidates alphabetically, by municipality. Candidate names are linked to their website, if they have one. I have also included a direct statement or quotation from candidates’ websites or social media that outlines their priorities or platform (when available).
