Incumbents

We have published a candidate pledge  which all candidates were invited to sign. The pledge suggests ways to make Council’s actions more transparent in the future. We’ve done a lot of research on it, and looked at the codes of other municipalities. Some of the actions in our pledge are already part of our city code. Others are just plain common sense.

Councillor Sebben has signed the pledge.

We think of the pledge as a way to deal with the distrust that has grown since the Xinyi affair. If a candidate you wish to support has signed the pledge, discuss it with them. Use the pledge to make sure you are in agreement with their values. If your chosen candidate has not signed the pledge, ask them why. Dialogue is the best path to a more informed and democratic council.
