Côte St. Luc residents will have a chance to meet the candidates challenging the incumbents for the upcoming municipal election 7 p.m. Sunday Sept. 17, resident Marissa Sidel announced on Facebook. The event will take place at the new Café de L’Avenue on The Avenue. Sidel is also the administrator of the Let’s Chat CSL Facebook page. The challengers thus far, who are confirmed to be at the Sept. 17 meeting, include former CSL mayor Robert Libman, Oren Sebag (District 1), Melodie Cohn (District 2), Eric Banon (District 4), Mitch Kujavsky (District 5), David Tordjman (District 6), Matitya Loran (District 7) and Monique Assouline (District 8). The incumbents are the entire current council, including Mayor Mitchell Brownstein, Sam Goldbloom (District 1), Mike Cohen (District 2), Dida Berku (District 3), Steven Erdelyi (District 4), Allan Levine (District 5), Glenn Nashen (District 6), Sidney Benizri (District 7) and Ruth Kovac (District 8). Councillor Mike Cohen told The Suburban he did not receive an invitation to the Sept. 17 meeting. Sidel told us that the meeting is for the challenging candidates only to meet the public, and that “if the incumbents want to organize something at the café, they have the same freedom to do so as did the candidates.”
