Matichuk announced last week she has decided not to seek a second term as mayor. Melanson launched his campaign platform last week, while Rodriguez and Dupuis kicked off their campaigns earlier in the spring. The municipal election is Oct. 27.

The picture is a little different when the undecided vote is factored in. The poll found 28.4 per cent of voters are still undecided, 27.3 per cent said they were leaning toward supporting Matichuk, 12.5 for Melanson, 11.4 for Rodriguez and 10.2 per cent for Dupuis.

Matichuk was the second choice of 21.6 per cent, followed by Rodriguez (17.6 per cent), Dupuis (15.7 per cent) and Melanson (11.8 per cent.)

The poll was a survey of 400 voters in Greater Sudbury conducted between May 15-18. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 per cent, 19 times out of 20.
