At the moment, 10 candidates are registered for the place of the mayor and 50 candidates will compete for 15 seats in the city council, and among them there are very interesting personalities.
Grant Nordman, nicknamed as Government Grant, announced his intention to return to the city council. He was a city councilor from St. Charles ward in 2006-2014, but now he registered to run in another ward, Charleswood-Tuxedo. Grant is known for being an ally of the former mayor of Winnipeg Sam Katz.
The second one who will try to return to the chair of the city councilor this autumn is Garth Stake, former River Heights-Fort Garry councilor. He lost the election in 2004, but most of all he became known for the fact that he did not file campaign expenses and was the first to be officially convicted of this in Winnipeg.
Also, there are hot debates whether Russ Wyatt will run for a new term. Not so long ago, he said that he did not know whether he would participate in the election race because of the charges brought against him. Recall that in July the Transcona city councilor was charged with sexual harassment. He also underwent a course of addictions treatment.
The deadline for submitting applications for participation in elections ends on September 18, and voting will be held on October 24.
