Morinville – Candidates were out over the weekend using a variety of methods to get their message out. Individual candidates went door to door, jogged through the streets in campaign t-shirts, stood on the side of the road playing air guitar and one used telephone auto diallers to mechanically make their pitch.
In the interest of consolidating the information MorinvilleNews.com has gathered from candidates over the past four weeks, we have decided to present that information in one place to help you decide.
All 15 candidates were invited to submit a guest editorial to be published free of charge any time during the campaign.
The following candidates submitted pieces for publication
School Trustee Candidates
No School Trustee Candidates took us up on our offer to submit a guest editorial.
