This morning I filed my papers to run for Deputy Mayor in the 2018 municipal election.
I want to thank everyone who encouraged me to run, who endorsed my application, and who has promised to help my campaign. Your confidence in my ability to do the job and to provide open, ethical governance and return council to accountability is deeply felt. I promise I will not let you down.
I will continue to inform voters of the abuses of power and personal agendas this term, and expose for a larger audience the unacceptable amount of secrecy and deception this council has used to govern and to mislead the community. I will also underscore my opponent’s part in these decisions, from blocking the hospital’s redevelopment to privatizing our electricity utility and our airport, to raising taxes every year – all reasons you should not trust him to make decisions on your behalf in the future.
I will be publishing more shortly, with a fuller campaign platform.
