The latest person to throw their name into the municipal elections hat is former regional councillor Mila Wong.
Wong was a regional councillor between 1991 and 1994. She ran unsuccessfully for Ward 5 in 2000, and now will challenge Frances Caldarelli for Ward 10.
Wong also ran for provincial government as a representative of the Progressive Conservative Party in 1999 and 2003. She came in second to Liberal candidate Rick Bartolucci in both elections.
Prior to living in Sudbury, Wong lived and worked in Winnipeg, Vancouver, and Toronto. She is a registered nurse, and acted as executive director of the Sudbury and District Association for Community Living, according to Wikipedia.
The municipal elections are scheduled for Oct. 25. Currently, almost half of the city's wards have multiple candidates.
There are currently two candidates for the Mayor's seat as well.
Candidates have until Nomination Day — September 10 — to register a completed nomination form.
