SOUTH DUNDAS — Election day is fast approaching, but South Dundas residents, do you know who you’re voting for yet? Who’s running? What are their views and hopes for the municipality’s future?

There will be three all candidates meetings in the upcoming weeks.

Wednesday, October 3 at 7 p.m. — Matilda Hall, Dixons Corners

Thursday, October 11 at 7 p.m. — Civic Centre, Iroquois

Monday, October 15 at 7 p.m. — Upper Canada Playhouse, Morrisburg

(More information on these nights can be seen on the South Dundas Chamber of Commerce website.)

For those who can’t wait until then, or for those unable to attend, Nation Valley News has you covered. We asked all of the South Dundas candidates these same six questions:

1. What prompted your decision to run for council this time?

2. What are the key strengths you would bring to the job if elected?

3. What are the top few issues that you see facing the Municipality?

4. Is there anything you hope to change in the Municipality?

5. How is your message being received during this campaign?

6. Voting begins on Oct. 17 — ironically the day of marijuana legalization. The new council will have to decide soon if your municipality will permit storefront cannabis sales, or opt out altogether. Should your municipality allow pot shops or ‘just say no’?
