Apparently, the UCP is thinking of adding party labels to the names of candidates on municipal election ballots. They ran an online survey last fall (Nov. 7 to Dec. 6), asking for feedback on the statement “the electoral ballot should be amended to allow political parties to be listed by municipal candidates.”
More than 70 per cent of respondents were opposed. To the UCP: Hands off our municipal elections!
To fellow citizens: Write to the UCP and oppose this before they go any further. Let’s keep our city council “Lethbridge-ites” and make it easy for them to continue to work together as colleagues.
