Candidate Profile Guide 

To assist voters in finding information about candidates and to make informed choices in Victoria’s 2022 Local Government Election, the City provides an online Candidate Profile Guide [PDF - 6 MB]. Here is the accessible version [DOCX - 63 KB]

All candidates were given the opportunity to submit a brief candidate profile (up to 150 words) and photo to let voters know about themselves and their platforms. 

(NOTE: The profile statements submitted and any materials referenced, such as candidates’ social media and websites, have not been reviewed or edited by the City of Victoria.

The views and opinions expressed in the profile statement and reference materials for each candidate are those of the candidate and do not reflect the views or opinions of, nor are they endorsed by, the City of Victoria.)
