Côte-des-NeigesNotre-Dame-de-Grâce mayor Michael Applebaum, who has been involved in municipal politics for the past 15 years, will seek a third mandate as mayor next fall.
To second him in his work, Applebaum will be able to count on the support of his veteran colleague Marvin Rotrand, city councillor for the Snowdon district who has been representing his citizens for the last 27 years.
Three new candidates complete the team.
In the Côte-des-Neiges district, Helen Fotopulos is Union Montreal’s candidate. The current city councilor, Francine Senécal, will not seek another mandate. Presently mayor of the Plateau-Mont-Royal borough, Fotopulos lives in CDN. She was in charge of the campaign for Abe Limonchik from 1982 to 1994, and was a candidate in Côte-des-Neiges for the 1978 elections.
Marie-Josée Mastromonaco aspires to be elected for the first time in the Notre-Dame-de-Grâce district. A school commissioner representing NDG at the Commission Scolaire de Montréal, the mother of three is actively involved in education and social development. She will try to succeed to Marcel Tremblay, who already announced he would not be seeking a new mandate next November.
Lionel Perez, a lawyer actively involved in the Jewish community, will try to win in Darlington; succeeding to Saulie Zajdel.
Finally, Susan Clark, a resident of NDG who chaired the local Community economical development corporation (CDEC), will seek to succeed to Warren Allmand, actual city councillor for the Loyola district. Clark was elected school commissioner of NDG with the English Montreal School Board from 1994 to 2004.
