As Capital Ward voters get closer to the October 22 municipal election, they have lost two of the earlier declared candidates but have gained one new one.

Both Emilie Taman and Joe Federico have withdrawn

but Shawn Menard has joined the race to be the councillor representing Old Ottawa East, Old Ottawa South, the Glebe, Heron Park and the Riverside Drive area east of Old Ottawa East.

The other declared candidates are Jide Afolabi, Anthony Carricato, incumbent David Chernushenko, and Christine McAllister, all of whom have been canvassing in Old Ottawa East.

“It was a tough decision,” says Mr. Federico citing personal reasons for withdrawing. “Ultimately, I’d love to be involved in contributing to the direction of the City, affecting communities positively, and changing society for the better.”

“I had very much hoped to run in a context where the mayor was facing a credible opponent,” Ms.Taman told the Mainstreeter. “With Paul Dewar now unable to run, and no one else having stepped forward, I’m feeling very discouraged.”
