Candidate/Elected Official FAQ

Why is personal/family information included?

Details about careers and business interest are included for council members and their families because they pertain to indirect pecuniary interests under the Municipal Conflict of Interest Act. The Act applies to the interests of parents, spouse and children, but we expand that to extended families, if their interests are local.
