An­other Ward 14 can­di­date has de­cided to sup­port a com­peti­tor.

Terry White­head is­sued a re­lease Fri­day an­nounc­ing he has been en­dorsed by fel­low Moun­tain can­di­date Vin­cent Sa­muel. The for­mer Con­ser­va­tive fed­eral elec­tion can­di­date had al­ready an­nounced Oct. 5 he would no longer ac­tively cam­paign, cit­ing per­sonal is­sues. (It is too late for any can­di­date to with­draw his or her name from the bal­lot.)

But Sa­muel is quoted in the re­lease say­ing he is sup­port­ing White­head be­cause he “has a proven track record of get­ting things done.”

White­head is the Ward 8 in­cum­bent but chose to run in Ward 14 af­ter bound­aries shifted. The move fol­lows a sim­i­lar en­dorse­ment of Ward 14 hope­ful Bryan Wil­son by fel­low ward can­di­date Robert Iszkula, who ex­plained his en­dorse­ment as a way to try to pre­vent an­other in­cum­bent elec­tion win. Roslyn French-Sanges is the other can­di­date vy­ing for the Ward 14 seat.
