Whaley to seek third term in Ward 5

After serving seven years as a Waterloo city councillor, Mark Whaley has yet to have his fill of Ward 5.

In a statement released on July 23, Whaley officially announced that he would be running for re-election in the ward. Success in the city’s 2010 election would mark the lifetime Waterloo resident’s third term as a city councillor.

As for the Ward 5 race, Whaley’s declaration also gave Zdravko Gunjevic, a newcomer to the political game, his first dose of competition.

Waterloo’s 2010 municipal election is slated for Oct. 25. Candidate nominations will be accepted until 2pm on Sept. 10.
