Mayor Peter Kelly has devoted many years to public life. I have always acknowledged his commitment to this municipality, and his work ethic on behalf of the citizens of the Halifax area. We owe him thanks for his service.
There will still be an election in the fall. I am one of several candidates for mayor.
I will continue to focus on the task at hand which is visiting all parts of HRM, making sure people have a chance to tell me what they believe the issues are, then setting out my plan for making this the most liveable, entrepreneurial and inclusive city in Canada.
