Former Saskatoon mayor wants job back, says would hold plebiscite on art gallery
SASKATOON – Saskatoon’s former mayor Henry Dayday wants the job back.
He says he will run in the October civic election, saying he’s had enough of irresponsible spending by the city.
In particular, Dayday says the city hasn’t been transparent while dealing with the new art gallery and the River Landing development.
Dayday says he would hold a plebiscite that would either save the Mendel Art Gallery or build the future Remai Art Gallery.
He says he also wants to make street maintenance a priority, perform a thorough review of accounts, have transparent government and assess traffic flows.
Dayday was the mayor of Saskatoon from 1988 to 2000 when he lost a bid for re-election.
He took two unsuccessful tries at running for federal ridings, once with the Liberals and once with the Conservatives.
