Mayor Reid Hamer-Jackson is hoping to get input on the City’s strategic plan from candidates defeated in last October’s civic election.
The mayor told ArmchairMayor.ca he figures the candidates have put a lot of thought into the future of the city and might have some good ideas for the mayor and council to consider when they sit down to look at the strategic plan Jan. 27.
“Why not talk to as many people as possible?” he said.
His invitation applies both to defeated mayoral and council candidates. Hamer-Jackson said he doesn’t have a list of their contact information, and election rules prevent the City from providing it to him, so he’s reaching out through the media and asking them to get in touch.
The strategic plan covers the local economy, governance and accountability, livability and environmental leadership and sets direction for the next few years.
Former candidates wishing to provide input for the strat plan sessions are asked to call City Hall at 250-828-3311.
