No doubt this past municipal election race has been a nail-biter for residents all across the city, but nowhere was it closer than in Ward 11. With Brenda Johnson edging out incumbent Dave Mitchell, a new leaf has been turned for the residents of Glanbrook.
Johnson is solid on many issues. She holds a strong, positive position supporting local businesses instead of the big box store corporatism of Dave Mitchell. She is also supportive of local farmers and is not one to be lobbied by the developers of the AEGD.
I think she is a real, significant improvement on the stale politics of Mr. Mitchell. I wish her the best as she steps in the right direction to represent the people of this community in the next four years.
