If anyone is considering running this fall here are the results from last election. Some of the wards were won with just over 1200 votes, not bad for a part time job that pays over $20,000 a year.

    I have always said, it don’t matter how many are running it is the message that has to get through! Go linda!

    Maybe it is time to form some loose coalition amongst some of the candidates. The Cambridge freedom party sounds like an idea!

  3. Brett July 21, 2010 at 4:02 pm

    Here’s another idea; 85,600 voting members of Council, namely the entire voting citizenry of Cambridge.

  4. Jimm July 21, 2010 at 5:30 pm

    There may be that many voters in Cambridge, but the average turnout is only around 30%. Last election it was 31%, unfortunately people don’t consider the municipal elections important.

    I have always found it ironic that municipal voters are so apathetic…its not “sexy” politics i guess…but the reality is, in allot of cases, municipal politics/issues have more impact on our day-to-day lives than provincial or federal ones…

    There was a Federal Election at the same time, that may have made a difference. I’m curious what impact social networking and sites like Facebook will have.

  7. Brett July 22, 2010 at 1:26 pm

    JMac, you’re right on the money, local politics have a *lot* to do with our city’s fiscal health, and ultimately, it affects the amount of local tax. More accountability to the civilian population is needed, and can be achieved in the here and now.

    Someone over at the Advocate must be reading you guy’s, this morning they posted this same list. Ah, originality, what a concept.
