I am on Twitter quite a lot – my iPhone is a very good friend of mine – and something that I and others have noticed lately are a number of requests for a summary table of candidates.

Will over at Mos Publicus has tirelessly put together such a list on his blog. At the time of this writing, he has compiled the Mayoral list and was working on the Council list… a total of 140ish candidates! Go Will!

So… what you see below is my attempt at providing Ottawa voters with a summary of candidates for the OCDSB.

I went back and forth on a few things when putting this together. Should I list only challengers and not incumbents?Should I draw attention to the other to candidates who are running against your’s truly? I mean, should I really be giving incumbents more exposure than they already enjoy?

But in the end I remembered why I was running in this election: better communication… which leads to more transparency and a more informed electorate. Plus, I invite you to look at her information and compare the two of us.

So, what follows is as complete a list as I can come up with. IF there is information missing, PLEASE don’t yell at me but send me a note or make a comment in the comment field noting the omission and proving the correct details.

Emails are listed first and then website, if applicable. I did not hunt down Facebook or Twitter presence (except my own!), but the sites should have that info. Challengers are in red and bold font.
