Thunder Bay is a great city with vast potential and we need new leaders at City Hall with fresh perspectives.” Margarit said. “It is true that we have challenges in our community, some that are complex and needing long-term solutions, but I truly believe that if we as a community can come together, we can make a positive impact.”
