With municipal elections approaching, AUMA, RMA, and Municipal Affairs collaborated to develop the Running for Municipal Office – What do Candidates Need to Know hub available on AUMA and RMA websites.
The hub provides incumbent and new candidates with useful information on campaigning and election requirements. It also offers a series of short videos from AUMA and RMA board members on must-know topics related to running for office and preparing for your first weeks as an elected official.
Municipalities are encouraged to link to the hub through their local candidate support resources.
AUMA has also developed a Local Democracy Pledge (the Pledge) to promote fair and transparent municipal elections, free from undue partisan and financial influences.
