Cornwall Ontario – Today at 1:00 PM, in the hallway outside the Mayor’s office, Jamie Gilcig announced the return of Seaway Radio. The digital radio program ran for over a year but was discontinued for various reasons. The talk show format is strictly digital and can be accessed by computer or mobile devices, live or as podcasts using services such as iTunes or directly on CFN.
The first test broadcast will be live on Friday January 3, 2014 at 10:00 AM.
While being interviewed he also revealed that, as promised, he would register as a candidate for the mayor’s office if current Mayor Kilger officially chooses to run for the office again. While rumour is rampant, the Mayor has until September to put his name on the line and register as a candidate. This was the first day for candidates to register for the election.
As the editor of CFN Jamie has been critical of the performance of the city council and because of it, he and CFN have been subjected to considerable mistreatment. Not only has CFN been subject to an advertising ban by city hall, but Jamie has personally been ejected from city council meeting because the mayor’s dislike for a piece of Jamie’s clothing.
Mr. Gilcig believes that the city needs a change in council to bring transparency, honesty and cost effectiveness to the management of the city’s affairs and to reduce taxes.
If the incumbent mayor officially registers to run for office again as he has stated in multiple interviews then Jamie will challenge him for the position.
