CFN Rates the Cornwall Ontario Council Candidates – Dare to Compare! OCT 27, 2014

ballotCORNWALL Ontario – We rated all of those running for council in Cornwall Ontario over the last week of the election.

It’s been a fierce campaign as there have been more candidates than in recent memory and there are a lot of people that simply do not want to vote for any of the incumbents even if some of the new candidates would be worse than what we had.

Candidates were rated in the following categories:  Perceived Honesty & Integrity, Vision and Action, Accessibility & Accountability, Leadership & Strength, and Win#  on a scale from 1-10 each with 10 being best.  The highest total score total would be 50.

The Mayorlty candidates were not reviewed as publisher Jamie Gilcig is one of the three. Likewise we did not review school board trustees as both school boards financially boycott CFN in spite of us having the largest audience in the region.
