Whitchurch-Stouffville Mayoral Candidates Debate

Who will be the next Mayor of Whitchurch-Stouffville?


The Stouffville Chamber of Commerce will host a Mayoral candidates debate on Monday, October 15, at Eastridge Evangelical Missionary Church, 12485 Tenth Line, starting at 7 p.m.

Four individuals have thrown their hat in the ring in the race for Mayor. The contenders are former NHL player Keith Acton, Mayoral incumbent Justin Altmann, local businessman and active volunteer Anand Daté, and current Ward 5 councillor Iain Lovatt. With four very distinctive personalities seeking the top job, the upcoming mayoral race for Whitchurch-Stouffville promises to be an interesting one.

The debate format will allow each candidate equal time to introduce themselves. Following introductions, there will be a series of prepared questions that each candidate may answer. This segment will then be followed by questions from the audience before each is asked to sum up their platform.

The entire event will be broadcast on Whistle Radio and the MC will be Whistle Radio host Patty Tamlin. It is free of charge and open to the public.

This event presents a great opportunity for residents to assess the qualifications of each candidate. The individual who possesses the best skills in leadership, conciliation, integrity and vision will be determining factors in the outcome of the race. This should be a rousing debate that will give us some insight into who might be our next Mayor following the municipal election on October 22.
