Let’s talk local politics

I’m probably preaching to the choir here but local politics impacts your day-to-day life in incredible ways. Yesterday was the last day for nominations in the October 27th municipal elections. We’re proud to have the following folks participating in the Live Local KW challenge and stepping up to make our cities and our region a better place to live, work and play:

Angela Vieth
Berry Vrbanovic

Bob Mavin
Dan Glenn-Graham
Dave Jaworsky
Diane Freeman
Elizabeth Clarke
Erika Traub
Fauzia Mazhar
Greg Burns
James Howe
Jane Mitchell
Karen Scian
Melissa Durrell
Sarah Marsh
Shelly Reed

A special shout out to Dan Herman and Cathy MacLellan, Qualified Nomination Contestants for the Waterloo Federal Liberal Party.

Whether you know a little or a lot about local politics, make sure to read the Cord Community Edition’s Shape the Debate during this election. The CCE is trying a new approach to covering elections, I think it’s on a good path and can’t wait to see more of it.

Live Local KW starts tomorrow! Hope you’re signed up, ready to go and as excited as I am. Don’t forget to spread the word (sign ups will be allowed during the week) and keep us updated with your local happenings using #livelocalkw.

Locally yours,

Update: since Live Local KW started, we’re proud to have the following politicians join us for the challenge:

Catherine Fife
Margaret Johnston
