Former Surrey mayor Doug McCallum announced today that he will run for office in this fall’s municipal elections.
McCallum has been in the public eye more and more often in recent months, criticizing a number of current mayor Dianne Watt’s decisions.
He lost to her in 2005, after serving as mayor for nine years.
He has already said he is concerned about public safety, transit, and fiscal responsibility in the city.
