Had an excellent conversation with a candidate running for Mayor tonight. I was impressed by the balanced approach and realistic goals presented. I believe a mayor needs to be highly educated, BA at a minimum, have a thorough understanding of the political system and the relationship between municipal, regional provincial and federal jurisdictions. I need my Mayor to understand they serve at the behest of Council who serves at the behest of the public, like a CEO is accountable to the board and the board is accountable to shareholders. I hope the future Mayor embraces the role as “ spokesmen “ to the public for the policies set in place by council. This person shared these principles and I think they will make a fantastic leader if given the opportunity. I particularly agreed with the idea of supporting some policies from rival platforms which would benefit the community. Good luck Sharie Marie Minions, you have my vote.
