Trustee candidate name unclear

On Nov. 19, 2011 I voted in the municipal election. I reviewed the candidates and made my selections.

On Nov. 19, 2011 I voted in the municipal election. I reviewed the candidates and made my selections.

Unfortunately, I was surprised to learn that one of the school trustees in the Belmont zone of School District 62, was not who I thought it was — Don Brown.

My surprise was that Don Brown (a school trustee from 2008 to 2011) is the father of the person who was running. They apparently share the same name; however I have come to learn that the son commonly goes by Rob Brown.

Now his name may truly be Donald Robert Brown, but should the chief electoral officer have not provided some clarity? Should the SD 62 website not have provided some clarity?  Should the civic info website not have provided some clarity?
