The Saskatoon StarPhoenix has put together the latest tally of candidates seeking election in the 2016 municipal election.
I am happy to be Ward 8's local candidate. Having lived in Greystone Heights for nearly three decades, I have a multi-generational perspective unique to our ward. As I have been meeting neighbours on the doorstep, it has been incredible to meet other who have also been in the ward for an extended period of time. The record to beat so far is from a couple I met in Brevoort Park who have been in their home for 51 years! Other residents have been the ward for 50, 43 and 41 years. I think that says a lot about the sense of community that is felt within our neighbourhoods.Read more

That includes being prepared for all meetings, including those of Council and its committees, encouraging and creating space for community dialogue and ensuring residents' opinions are heard and respected by those who serve on City Council.
As of July 8, here are the candidates who have announced for the October 26 municipal election.
