Logan Ollivier First Candidate to File in Thunder Bay
THUNDER BAY – Logan Ollivier is the first candidate to file papers in the 2014 Civic Election in Thunder Bay. The votes will be counted on October 27th, but nominations opened today, January 2nd. The incumbent representative for McIntyre Ward is Trevor Giertuga.
“I’m very excited and proud to officially begin my 2014 campaign for Councillor of McIntyre Ward,” states Ollivier. “While I commend and thank all of council for the long hours and dedication they put in over the last four years, I think a new voice is needed to help steer us into the future”.
“Thunder Bay is overflowing with potential and it’s and a broad approach is needed to see that come to fruition,” adds Ollivier. “McIntyre Ward is one of the fastest growing areas of the city and is leading the way in new home builds with Sherwood Estates and Hilldale subdivisions under construction”.
Ollivier has been following City Council and producing an online Tweet and Facebook stream of commentary on City Council. (Facebook: Logan Ollivier)
“We have to plan for our future generations and not just our current situations. It’s time to diversify our economy and create a business climate that will entice outside investment here,” shares Ollivier. “Northwestern Ontario is one of the most beautiful places in Canada and the only thing holding us back is our self-created limitations. Thunder Bay is one of the greatest cities in the country and its time to reveal this ‘best kept secret’ to the rest of Canada. It’s time to grow Thunder Bay not only for now but for all our future generations,” concludes Ollivier.
Thunder Bay Mayor Keith Hobbs is seeking a second term. The Mayor is setting up his re-election campaign strategy and will be off and running shortly.
Councillor at Large Aldo Ruberto is also going to be seeking another term on Council. Incumbent Councillors, Larry Hebert, Brian McKinnon, Linda Rydholm and Joe Virdiramo are also seeking another term on Council.
