Three candidates are vying for the city council seat in Orléans East-Cumberland (formerly Orléans Ward) starting with the current incumbent Matt Luloff.

Luloff first won the seat in 2016 when he beat out 15 other candidates. The Afghanistan veteran grew up in Orléans and attended St. Matthew High School. He spent his summers and weekends working as a lifeguard and instructor at a variety of pools including Bob McQuarrie Recreational Complex and The Ray Friel Centre.

After leaving the Canadian Forces, Luloff graduated from The Arthur Kroeger College of Public Affairs at Carleton University with a Bachelor of Public Affairs and Policy Management. Before entering politics he worked as an advisor to several members of parliament and federal cabinet ministers.

He lives in Orléans with his wife Laura and their two young daughters Elizabeth and Madeleine.

As a member of Ottawa city council he has served as the chair of the community and protective services committee; chair and president of the Ottawa Public Library; and as a member of both the finance and economic development committee and the transportation committee member.

Born in Montréal, Rosemee Cantave is a fully licensed Physician from Haiti who moved back to Canada in 2007. According to he biography, she is driven by her desire to help others and make the community better.

As a research coordinator at the Ottawa Hospital, Cantave is an active member of the Association for the Social Integration of Ottawa which advocates for people with intellectual disabilities or behavioral disorders. She is a determined advocate for improving programs and services that directly impact this, and other underserved population.

Cantave lives in Orléans with her husband Alexandre and their two children Yara and Tristan.

Tessa Franklin grew up in Rockland, ON, and moved to Ottawa in 2016 to pursue a career in the music industry. She spent several years working for local concert promoter, Spectrasonic.

Since leaving Spectrasonic, Tessa has been keeping busy building a not-for-profit to support women in the music industry and advocating for better support for veterans.

Her platform highlights things such as improvements to active and public transit, support for small businesses, increased community consultation, protection for greenspaces such as Petrie Island and the creation of a Veterans Food Bank. The core of her platform is accountability and transparency. On account of this, Tessa is turning down developer donations.

The 2022 municipal election will take place on Monday, Oct. 24. Advance polls will be held on Oct. 7 and 14 between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. All eligible voters should receive their voting information by mail.
