The October 24 municipal election is fast approaching, and with a total of 15 candidates – two for mayor, one for deputy mayor (acclaimed) and 12 for councillor, Meaford voters have much to choose from. The first task is to get to know the candidates and what their priorities are, so we have asked each of the candidates a series of questions to help do just that.
The Municipality of Meaford will be voting by mail and in-person for the upcoming Municipal and School Board Elections.
In our 2022 Municipal Election Guide issue (in stores Thursday, and in subscriber mailboxes on Friday) you will find a wealth of information from the candidates in their own words. Read through each of the candidate profiles and find candidates who you feel would best represent your interests at council.
After learning what the candidates have to say you can find out more by attending one of the all candidates debates, or by contacting the candidates themselves to ask them some questions of your own.
As of the date of publication, a number of candidate meetings have been planned:
- The Bognor Community Centre will be hosting two All Candidates Meetings in September:
Tuesday, Sept 27, 2022, at 7 p.m. will be for councillors
Thursday, Sept 29, 2022, at 7 p.m. will be for Mayors, Deputy Mayor, and School Board Trustees
- The Meaford Chamber of Commerce will host an all candidates meeting on October 3, at 7 p.m. at Meaford United Church.
- The Meaford 55+ Friendship Club is hosting an all candidates meeting at the Meaford & St. Vincent Community Centre on October 18, at 2 p.m.
Of course you will want to ensure that you are on the voters’ list if you plan to vote on October 24. Visit www.meafordvotes.ca to find all of the election information you will need in order to ensure that you are on the voters’ list and ready to cast your ballot.
