Third candidate enters mayoral race

A third candidate has entered the race for mayor in this fall’s Waterloo municipal election. Dale Ross, retired business executive and Laurier alumnus, announced his candidacy against Brenda Halloran, current mayor, and Jan d’Ailly, current councilor for Ward 6.

According to the Waterloo Region Record, Ross is running for mayor because he wants to correct the city’s unhealthy financial situation. Ross is against the city’s current policy of tying municipal taxes to a special rate of municipal inflation and believes more sustainable financial management practices can be utilized.

Nominations for the Oct. 25 election are being accepted until Sept. 10 at 2 p.m.
