The RUSH spoke with four of the five candidates running for mayor of Whitehorse and here is what they had to say.

Municipal elections across Yukon will be held Thursday, October 18th. 

On Monday morning, RUSH Senior News Reporter Tim Kucharuk sat down with four of the five candidates running for mayor of Whitehorse. All candidates were asked the same 13 questions.

The RUSH did speak on the phone with candidate Kelly Suits on Friday, and he indicated he would get back to us but as of Monday at noon, that has not happened. If he contacts us before Thursday, we will update this page.

A reminder CKRW The RUSH will have live coverage on Thursday night starting when the polls close at 8 p.m. including reports from Whitehorse City Hall as the votes are counted. We will also be keeping an eye on races for mayor and council in the communities.

The order of candidates are as they will appear on the ballot.
