It only takes two to tangle

I have decided to withdraw my candidacy for Ward 4.” Sound familiar?

With those words, DAN DAVIDSON is the latest entry to exit the Ward 4 race.

Since registrations began in January, six people have signed up to apply for the Councillor’s job. Two remain. CAROL GOTTLOB and JACK DENNISON.

Well, sort of.

Of the four candidates who’ve let it be known they’ll withdraw – just one has officially filed at City Hall to do that. On paper, it’s still a 5-person race!

*** UPDATE: After posting this blog, Dan Davidson filed to withdraw. It’s official.

September 12th is the deadline to withdraw or register.

So, if any registrant fails to formally withdraw by then, his or her name will be on the ballot. And vote splitting inadvertently becomes a factor for the only candidate (so far) who intends to challenge the 20-year incumbent.
