61% of Endorsed Candidates Elected!

Better Choices Waterloo Region logoA big thank you goes out to everyone who voted for the Better Choices candidates, and who worked so hard to encourage your fellow union members, family, and neighbours to do the same. We now have progressive Mayors of all three of our cities in Waterloo Region, and a progressive Regional Chair. Better Choices Waterloo Region and our Labour Council played a big part in making that happen! We helped elect 23 out of the 38 (61%) candidates we endorsed. An additional three progressive people who sought but did not receive our endorsement were also elected.

See the table below to see how our endorsed candidates fared.
