Via Sun story today, with the nomination period to declare intent to run in the October election being Sept 12-18 there is currently just one candidate for Mayor and five of the ten wards have only one candidate so far (incumbents in Victoria, Meadows-Waverly, Linden Lanes, Green Acres along with new candidate in South Centre). Winnipeg is obviously a different and much larger city, but fwiw currently they have ten candidates registered for Mayor and some wards with as many as 6 and 8 candidates for Council. Out of 15 wards, 3 are uncontested. As far as Brandon is this to be taken that current Mayor and Council have done a great job over the past four years? That we have too many wards (Moose Jaw for example has 5, Lethbridge 7, Medicine Hat 8, Prince Albert 8)? That we’re better off with a system where all councillors are on one ballot for the city as a whole similar to School Division? That there aren’t enough incentives for one to want the job? that there’s a particularly high level of apathy for civic politics? None of the above?
