Who’s running for Calgary City Council in 2010?

By DJ Kelly April 3, 2010

[List last updated July 12, 2010.]

There sure are a lot of names coming out of the proverbial woodwork right about now saying they are going to run for Calgary City Council. Now it’s a long way off from nomination day on September 20, and everyone can change their minds still, but it’s already getting hard to figure out who is who, and who’s saying their running and who is not.

So with this in mind we decided to put together a list of everything we’ve seen reported, heard personally and have heard rumour of. We’ll try to update this list regularlly as we hear or see other things. If you know of anyone missing, please just let us know and we’ll add them!

PS – Try not to read too much into the difference between “rumoured” and “declared”. At this point it doesn’t really mean much. It’s more a degree of veracity in their statements up till now that made me choose one over the other. Some however, are just rumours.
