Mayoral politics

- February 28th, 2012

The next municipal election is years off, which makes now the perfect time for some wild speculation about local politics.

Do you have any thoughts on who might run for mayor next time out?

Will Mayor Joe — who said on the campaign trail he planned to serve only a single term — surprise no one by throwing his hat into the ring again?

Is there anyone currently on council you would expect, or even like, to run for the top job at City Hall?

Is there anyone else in the community — like former Liberal MP Glen Pearson, who is much in the headlines these days — you could see taking a shot at the mayor’s chair?

Are there any dark-horse candidates looming — say, a guy like MPP Chris Bentley? (Yes, you may get the Liberal of your choice!)

Let me know your thoughts on this one. If you’re of a mind to start any rumours, remember all speculation is welcome! The more absurd the better!
