This week on Open Sources Guelph, the municipal election coverage continues, except this week we take it literally to the next level. Kicking off our slate of mayoral candidate interviews, we’ve got two of the political newcomers who are staking their claim for Guelph’s highest political office. In the first half we’ve got a professor and in the second half we’ve got a private eye. Who will mayor best? You tell us on October 24 (and after next week’s show)!
This Thursday, October 13, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:
Grill Bill. A lot of politicians say they’re not a politician, but William Albabish is one of the three mayoral candidates who really has no previous experience running in a Guelph election. Albabish is a professor at the University of Guelph-Humber, but he’s now seeking political office on an outsider ticket. Can he do it? Scotty will talk to Albabish about being the scholastic face of the local mayor’s race, why he’s focused on infrastructure, and why he decided to run a sign-less campaign?
John of the Spread. If you’re a security conscious voter, perhaps a mayor with a background as a security consultant and private investigator might be of interest. Our second mayoral candidate on this week’s show is John Edward Krusky, who traces his family back to the earliest days of Guelph, and he now wants to see us through to the city’s 200th birthday. Adam will ask Krusky about his new political interest, how we reduce taxes per his platform, and balancing growth and the environment.
Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca at 5 pm on Thursday.
