Ward 13, Rideau-Rockcliffe, will be voting for its City Councillor on April 15, 2019. The deadline for filing nomination papers has passed. There are 17 candidates running to become Rideau-Rockcliffe’s next City Councillor!
The Community Association Presidents of New Edinburgh, Manor Park, Cardinal Glen, Lindenlea, Rockcliffe and Overbrook interviewed the candidates over three days. The purpose of the interviews was help our residents understand who the candidates are, what drives them to run, and what skills they bring to the table. There is no intent to endorse or support any of the candidates. Rather, the intent is to provide information to our Association residents so they can make more informed choices among the candidates.
Candidates were given five identical questions one hour before their allotted interview time. Each could answer any or all of the questions in any order they chose, and to the depth they deemed appropriate. What follows is a summation of each candidate’s answers. The order of interviews and answers is based on when they registered with the City and does not indicate a rating.
Rogers TV interviewed the candidates. The French-language version of the show is available on YouTube
Here are the candidates:
