8 Responses to Martiniuk won’t seek re-election

    Doug Craig and Linda Whetham will be available in 12 days. Let’s give it a rest – seriously. The guy just announced his intentions. Let’s focus on celebrating the good things he accomplished in his time as our MPP.

    It is timely, Andrew. There has been speculation for months that he would be stepping down, and there have already been discussions. We’re just bringing it out in the open.

    Rather than “who the next MPP” will be, it might be interesting to consider who the candidates for each party will be. I think at least one, if not two, of our mayoral candidates would try for a nomination if they are unsuccessful on Oct 25.

    It is timely, Scot.

    Andrew, as for focusing on the ‘good things he (Martiniuk)did while in office’, I, for one, am very glad to hear you say that. You came down fairly hard on Gerry during The Record debate; which surprised me a great deal.

    I have never made any secret about considering stepping up, for the nomination, IF Gerry should step down.

    I agree with Colin that there may be 2 mayoral candidates who would also be vying for the nomination; should they lose the muni election. I think, Andrew for sure, and possibly (only ‘possibly’) Linda.

    Now if Andrew doesn’t win on the 25th, this would be a good spot for him.

    Okay, Steve, I ‘get it’……Andrew instead of me (for you, anyway). I am sad… 🙁

    I have never been a really big “fan” of Gerry “Mr. Petition” Martiniuk.
    But, I really commend the guy for stepping down and getting on with other things in life such as family. Oh that others would do the same.

    Sorry Margaret! you would make a good mpp as well!
