To Niagara At Large Readers – Feel Free to Name the Municipal Candidates You Feel Should Win this October 24th Election in the Comment Box Below at the End of this Post

An invite from Niagara At Large reporter and publisher Doug Draper

Posted October 19th, 2022 on Niagara At Large

Posting editorials or commentaries identifying candidates you want to see win a seat in municipal elections is like wandering through a briar patch at the best of times.

If you scroll down through some of the most recent stories on Niagara At Large at, you will see that I have done that for regional candidates in St. Catharines and Niagara Falls.

And sure enough, I am already getting a few comments on my Facebook page for the NAL site, wondering why I did not also include this or that candidate, or at least advising that candidate X, Y or Z should be on the list too.

That was bound to happen in a Niagara where there is a total of well over 200 candidates running for (at my last count) a total of 126 seats on the regional council and the local councils for Niagara’s 12 municipalities.

I am sure there are a number of candidates with good platforms and worthy of the consideration of Niagara voters.

So with that in mind, I invite you to use the comment space below if you want, to name candidates running for a regional or local council seat in your municipality who you would like to see win. You might also want to include a link to the candidate’s .website or Facebook page.

That invitation also extends to candidates themselves.

Having said all of that, this coming Monday, October 24th make sure you go out and vote for candidates you believe will help build a better future for us all.

  1. Vote Guy Graveline for St. Catharines City Councillor for Ward 2. He is the best candidate.


  2. I am voting for Guy Graveline, I think he is a man of integrity, drive, and competent for the service as city councilor, ward 2.


  3. Guy Graveline has made so much more effort than the incumbents in face to face to meetings with prospective voters. A new face amidst decade long serving councillors with fresh ideas is much needed for St. Andrews ward, St. Catharines


  4. Guy Graveline (running for a seat on St. Catharines city council – Ward 2, St. Andrew’s).


  5. Greg Pretty Sr.

    Guy Graveline, I’ve known Guy for at least 20 years and he is a man of integrity, honesty, and will do the job right. Vote Guy.


  6. Vote Guy Graveline. He is a man of integrity and honesty. He is well-versed in local issues that impact Ward 2 and all of St. Catharines. Guy’s fresh voice and ideas will benefit St. Catherines city-wide.


  7. I’ve been a lifelong St. Catharines resident and am proud to be here raising my family. From Port Dalhousie, to living next to the canal, to downtown, and now in Merritton I’ve seen and experienced so many different parts of the city.

    I’ve been following council and local politics since I could read (yes, I’m a dork). Below are my picks for each seat I can vote for.

    City Council:
    Greg Miller
    Jennifer Mooradian

    Regional Council
    Laura Ip
    Jim Bradley
    Haley Bateman
    Sabrina Hill
    Trecia McLennon
    Alicia Marshall

    School Board
    Kate Baggott


  8. Resident of Grimsby

    We HAVE to vote out the toxic G5 of Grimsby Council (residents here will know who I’m referring to), so we can start to undo some of the damage of the past 4 years. Vote wisely, Grimsby!


  9. Welland has an opportunity to change course. Frank Campion has run a very tight ship as Mayor and never faces any real challenge on Council. Is he doing a good job? He seems to be an efficient manager. But Welland as a community is dead. Our downtown is a graveyard. Campion didn’t kill it, but he and his Council don’t seem to understand that a community is about much more than residences and businesses. If we vote for the same old crew, we’ll continue on the same old way. And that would be a damn shame.


  10. I think Guy Graveline should be elected!!


  11. Guy Graveline has a common-sense approach. Time for new blood in Ward 2.
