Former Brandon city councillor Rick Chrest has invited news media to an "important announcement regarding the future of our great city" this morning.
Chrest is widely expected to announce his candidacy for mayor.
A public figure also through his quirky furniture advertising, Chrest served three terms on city council as the University ward councillor starting in the mid-1990s, including an acclamation in 2002. He was deputy mayor for eight years through that time before stepping down in 2006.
In September, Chrest told the Sun that running for mayor would be a "very big and important commitment" that one has to put a lot of thought into.
Chrest’s announcement is scheduled for 10 a.m. today. The Brandon Sun will cover the announcement online.
