Ken Boshcoff Campaigning Hard
THUNDER BAY – Ken Boshcoff is working hard in his campaign running for Mayor. Talking with NetNewsLedger the candidate and current Councillor says that bringing people and groups together is important.
While crime is a concern, Boshcoff says it is not the top issue on the minds of all the voters.
On the crime issue, Boshcoff says, “Crime is not the front burner issue for most people”.
On crime, Boshcoff says, “The focus should be on having a Mayor who can bring people together understanding that this issue is above all a “community” issue. By rallying and focusing energy the people of Thunder Bay can set this a priority priority”.
Is Thunder Bay a safe city? Ken states, “Yes, Thunder Bay is a safe city. Throughout history and in every city and town there are areas where people who abide by the law avoid. I agree with the Police that our efforts have to be concentrated on the areas of the most repetitive problems”.
“The Mayor has a singularly vital role. He must be seen to lead and not just to appear at media conferences,” asserts Boshcoff. “Having served on many task forces you have seen the result of my organizational skills, CrimeStoppers, 9-1-1 , Neighbourhood Watch, Block Parents, Community Policing, and numerous others. You have seen my efforts as a member of teams and as a team-leader win National and Provincial Awards for the above as well as Anti-Racism recognitions. The institutionalization of Crime Prevention confirms that the community is ready to work together-how much more they could achieve with an active and involved Mayor will be significant!”
Boshcoff is challenging incumbent Mayor Keith Hobbs in this October’s civic election. The other declared candidate is Doug McKay who also ran for Mayor two terms ago. Henry Wojak is said to be seeking to run, but is barred from City Hall on a no trespass order and can not yet file his papers.
