Hey there! With Mayor Carl Zehr officially announcing that he’s not seeking re-election, the shape of the municipal election on October 27 is coming into focus.
I’m giving serious consideration to offering myself as a candidate. Before I make a final decision, I’d like to consult you as a reader of this blog to find out what you think I should do.
But first some food for thought:
- I’ve paid a lot of attention to the activities of the City of Kitchener since starting this blog nearly 4 years ago. Living in Ward 10, there’s an opening since Dan Glenn-Graham seeks to become our next Mayor.
- Many issues that I care about including rapid transit are the responsibility of the Region of Waterloo.
- At the same time, I don’t need to be an elected politician to make a difference in our community. I’ve been doing that for most of my life including the last 5 years via social media.
- Given some of the feedback on previous posts, I know some folks would prefer that I just quietly fade into the background.
Please let me know what you think I should do.
