Will she or won’t she?
That’s the question on many people’s minds as rumours swirled yesterday that Mayor Shari Decter Hirst was to announce her intentions today on whether she’ll seek a second mandate.
While sources told the Sun the city’s first female and first left-wing mayor was going to make an announcement today, Her Worship was mum on the topic.
Decter Hirst officially announced her plans to run Friday morning, as predicted.
She refused to address the rumours and sourced information when asked by a Sun reporter at a chamber of commerce luncheon.
Former councillor and high-profile businessman Rick Chrest has already announced he intends to seek the mayor’s position.
The official campaign period for mayoral candidates starts May 1. The municipal election is Oct. 22.
