Incumbents set to be acclaimed — candidates neededCalgary municipal election nomination day is this Monday, September 17.
There are two sitting city councillors (still calling themselves by the gendered “Alderman” title) who do not have anyone running against them. They are Andre Chabot in Ward 10 and Rick McIver in Ward 12.
If you would be willing to run against them to prevent their acclamation, we’ve got people willing to try to help you get the 100 signatures and may be able to help with the $100 deposit over this weekend.
You do NOT have to live in the ward. You just need to be an adult Canadian citizen resident in Calgary to run. You don’t even have to commit to running much of a campaign — at this point, we’re just hoping to at least prevent these two incumbents from coasting to an effortless victory.
If you are interested in running, please pick up nomination forms from the election office (1103 - 55 Avenue NE; phone 221-3888) on Friday. If you are interested, but can’t get the forms, please contact us at the email/number below and we’ll try to get the forms for you.
