Municipal Council and School Board Trustee Q&A
September 23 @ 6:00 pm - 9:15 pm
Stittsville Village Association is proud to host a candidate Q&A in advance of the upcoming municipal and school board election September 23rd, at Stittsville United Church, 6255 Fernbank Road.
School board trustees from Ottawa Carleton District School Board (Zone 1), Conseil des écoles catholiques du centre-est (Zone 4), and Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (Zone 12) are invited to make an opening statements beginning at 6 pm (John Curry has been acclaimed for the Ottawa Catholic School Board). Questions from the audience will follow, and we will end the school board trustee candidate portion of the evening with closing statements. With three trustee contests spanning nine candidates in two languages, we will do our best to ensure everyone is heard.
At 7 pm, we will turn the evening over to the Ward 6 municipal council candidates, with opening statements beginning at approximately 7:15 pm. Our two candidates, incumbent Shad Qadri and challenger Glen Gower, will each have the opportunity to make a four-minute or less opening statement, which will be followed by 45-second questions from the audience. Question order will be determined by a ticket draw. Responses are limited to two minutes, with no rebuttals. At about 9:05 pm, candidates may make a four-minute closing statement.
Our bilingual moderator will be former Goulbourn Township Councillor and the first president of the SVA, Louise Beggs. Hélène Rivest will act as our official timer. We ask that applause be kept brief, and for everyone to refrain from heckling or talking over other speakers.
