Burlington slate of candidates is set

With the close of nominations Friday, the slate of Candidates for Burlington Council and Boards of Education is set. In two instances, school trustees are running for higher office. In the case of Burlington City Council, every incumbent is running again and all are facing challengers. Mayor Marianne Meed Ward faces four challengers including Anne Marden who has been a familiar face in Halton elections as a candidate.

In Ward two incumbent Lisa Kearns will be challenged by Keith Demoe and Tim O’Brien who was a Halton Catholic School Board trustee.

For Regional Chair Gary Carr is being challenged by former Burlington MPP Jane Mc Kenna.. Carr has held the regional post for 16 years. He won the seat handily in 2018, but his opponent, Anne Marsden, who has been running for various offices in Burlington and Halton for 30 years managed to garner over 40,000 votes. Halton School Trustee Andrea Grebenc is also challenging Carr. With Grebenc running for Regional Chair, seven candidates are going after her Board of Education seat in Burlington Wards 3 and 6.
