A new challenger has entered the fray in Somerset Ward.
Robert Dekker, a manager with Bell Canada, chaired the Kids Help Phone Ottawa walks in 2007 and 2008 and the Kids Help Phone Ottawa chapter in 2009. Dekker is also a member of the city’s roads and cycling advisory committee.
Also, Robert Larter has moved his travelling campaign to Bay Ward, but for how long?
Larter ran for mayor in 2006. He was registered to run for mayor again this year, but has since switched races to College Ward, then Kanata North, and he’s now registered in Bay Ward. It costs $100 to register to run for council but there is no fee for switching wards.
