Ward 10 is the least contested ward in the city. Only current Ward 5 councillor Don Iveson and challenger Al Slemko are running for the opportunity to represent the more than 61,000 residents.

The south-central ward is the recent beneficiary of an LRT line taking commuters north. With the train, however, came trouble. Long waits for drivers and added congestion in neighbourhoods along the LRT line has made the transition difficult for some. A Park and Ride service could help alleviate the problem.

Iveson is the youngest councillor in the city. During his first term, he focused on public transit and the environment.

Slemko ran for council back in 2004 and is ready to give it another go. He is a local business owner and has been active on city committees, including the Edmonton Federation of Community Leagues and the Sub-division Development Appeal Board.

The two candidates will take part in a public forum tonight at Louis St. Laurent Junior/Senior High School.
