Ottawans are engaging in local government… at least a bit.

From Blake Batson’s informative election site – Perspective Ottawa

The final numbers (unofficial) for the municipal election are as follows:

Running for mayor:  20 candidates (1 incumbent, 1 former mayor, 1 former regional chair)

Running for councillor: 110 candidates (19 incumbents)

As well,

Count ‘em – 29 candidates for Trustee positions on the OCDSB! Only ONE acclamation!

That’s up from 24 candidates in 2006 with 2 uncontested seats!

Way to go Ottawa!

Now let’s see those abysmal voter participation rates shoot up by 10 points or so!
