CORNWALL Ontario – Will he or won’t he? That’s the question that many are asking after Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger finally put his name on the dotted line and registered to run for a their term. The “he” in question is former Councilor Leslie O’Shaughnessy who resigned from council this past term under a cloud of recrimination including allegations that the mayor had lied to council and to himself.
O’Shaughnessy, who is refusing to be pinned down, still hasn’t confirmed if he will or will not run; but support has been gaining and rumblings from some local Conservatives are that he will announce within weeks.
Contacted by CFN he stated that he had nothing to confirm at this time.
His last political appearance was on Seaway Radio along with Newmarket Councilor Maddie DiMuccio. That episode discussed accountability and transparency in Municipal politics.
Currently only Mayor Kilger and CFN Editor Jamie Gilcig are announced for the Mayor’s race in Cornwall.
