Incumbent Shari Decter Hirst said over the weekend she plans to roll out "concrete, measurable goals" twice a week starting this Friday.

"I am looking for issues that won’t be dealt with normally through the city council agenda coming up over the next two months," she told the Sun. "These are projects in the city that are going to require a champion."

In a Facebook post on Saturday, Decter Hirst said she has a "vision for the future of Brandon. And it is very specific for the next four years."

Fellow mayoral candidate Rick Chrest has already issued several media releases regarding his election platform over the summer. In one he identified "taxation as a major issue," while another discussed his focus on economic development and tourism, and a third stated air service would hold a "permanent spot on my agenda."

"I’m a little careful of making them sound like any outright promises ... I don’t want to mislead people," he said.

Chrest said he will start releasing items on a weekly basis by the end of the month.

The third candidate, Mark Kovatch, filed his candidacy papers last week at which time he told the Sun he will begin campaigning in earnest at the end of this week as well. He was not immediately available for comment on Sunday.
