Vilnius mayor Remigijus Šimašius’s committee has made a list of candidates for the city council and is preparing to rate the candidates. The “For Vilnius in Which We Take Pride” committee’s list currently has 90 residents of Vilnius from various walks of life. The list could be expanded until the rating is made on December 11, a press release from the mayor’s team said.
The list of candidates includes Linas Kvedaravičius, Audronis Imbrasas, Vincas Jurgutis, Vytautas Mitalas, Renaldas Vaisbrodas, Donalda Meiželytė, Gediminas Jaunius, Redita Dominaitytė, Domininkas Velička and others.
In an earlier meeting by this movement, Šimašius was confirmed by the comittee as a candidate for a new term as mayor, leading the list of candidates into elections. Other positions on the list should become clear next week after the ratings are released.
“I am certain there was success in forming a very strong list, and the voters will be the judge. Our strength is our representation of diverse walks of life and fields of vital concern to the city. On the list we have people from the cultural, athletic and urban development fields, we have social activists, human rights activists, teachers, academics and representatives of the ethnic communities,” mayor Šimašius said.
