Councillors Margaret Stacey, Bob Adams and Robin Cherbo say they are throwing their names back in the ring for council again, but are not planning on running for mayor. “There are a lot of important election issues. I’m hoping that transit won’t be the major one but I’m sure it will be,â€? says Stacey. She questioned whether another council would have acted differently with the transit issue. Stacey hopes that the Downtown and Waterfront Sustainability Plan will become an election issue. “It’s just really visionary and it’s something I’m really passionate about, not even from a political perspective,â€? she says.
