After much speculation, Jeff Browaty won’t be running for mayor this fall.

Instead, Browaty will be running for re-election in his North Kildonan ward, where he has served since 2006.

He introduced a motion, recently passed by city council, which will ask voters on this fall’s civic election ballot if they want Portage and Main reopened to pedestrians.

“It’s time the mayor and council listened to the interests and desires of Winnipeggers when it comes to Portage and Main,” said Browaty in a statement.

 “Thanks to my efforts and the political pressure by the public on the mayor and my council colleagues, Winnipeggers are going to have a debate, and then they will be able to have their say.”
