CORNWALL Ontario – Robert “Bob” Kilger finally put his papers in and will be running for mayor which means I finally have someone to campaign against!
After several false starts and predictions of running the two term mayor signed on the dotted line to ask voters for a third chance to lead the city.
This last term has been marred by scandals and allegations of Conflict of Interest, Closed Door meetings that violated the rules, several whistle blowing cases, the Paul Fitzpatrick scandals, the mail scandal, and probably a few more that haven’t been reported yet. In other words, after Rob Ford, the McGuinty/Wynne team he should come in with 75% of the vote
I jest, sorta.
Asked for comment, former councilor Leslie O’Shaughnessy said he had no comment at this time as did a few other area politicos.
