After 12 years in municipal politics, the last six as mayor, I wanted a short break.
It didn’t seem right or fair at the time to run for office and then take time off, so I opted not to run in 2011.
I do not enjoy being idle. I like to be involved, I have a big stake in this community and I love this place.
It is a job I know well……… It is a job I enjoyed, and at the risk of sounding arrogant, I was good at it.
