My hope is that we can create a comprehensive list of candidates in each thread for the upcoming election. Please post any candidates you know are running for office in the appropriate thread. Thanks!
Here are a couple useful links to the City of Kitchener website.

Who's running
An interesting tweet coming out of last night's council meeting last night:

Quote:Terry Ross ‏@TerryWard_9

Councillors should not be tweeting during council meeting. @HeatherAbrey see BV

What do you think? Should councillors be tweeting during meetings?
Does anyone know anything much about the Kitchener mayoral candidates? I believe that Daniel Glenn-Graham is the chap who, as ward alderman, staked out a spot at the Kitchener Market every Saturday, which is to his credit. A couple of downtown merchants have commented favourably to me about Berry Vrbanovic. Peter Martin I know only by reputation and I admire the way he stuck with the Downtown for so many years, but I've heard that his personality might not be the most suited to municipal politics. The other two are unknown to me.

I hope to attend at least a couple of candidates debates, but any info, comments or advice?

All I learned about mayoral candidate Slavko Miladinovic, I learned from Reddit.

Me again.

To nobody's surprise, we are running some all-candidates meetings.

- Wed, Oct 8, 7-9pm: Kitchener Ward 9
- Tues, Oct 15, 7-9pm: Kitchener Ward 10
- Wed, Oct 22, 7-9pm: Kitchener Mayor

We are doing Kitchener Regional Council too, but I will post that in the appropriate thread.

They will be held at the Queen Street Commons, 43 Queen Street South, Kitchener

Also, it looks like the Social Planning Council is keeping track of all-candidates meetings this election: http://www.waterlooregion.org/municipal-elections-2014

Thinking a few things, maybe the personality of the politicians is a problem! What personality type do you think a politician needs to be? And Daniel Glenn-Gramham is the chap who is always at the market and in fact, always a lot of places, just helping people quietly behind the scenes, in concrete caring ways. I have seen him in odd places, where politicians don't generally go. He is a Humanitarian first, in my personal opinion. @achairwhocares
