Ontario municipal election 2018: City of Timmins
Timmins’ youngest ever elected mayor wants to do it all again for another four-year term.
Steve Black was first elected to Timmins City Council in 2010 and won the mayoralty with almost 65 per cent of the vote in 2014. With four challengers for mayor on the ballot – including well-known mining executive George Pirie – will he pull it off again?
On council, all the incumbents in Timmins’ five wards are running again.
In the northern Ontario city, it’s one councillor per ward except in Ward 5 – which covers the city’s centre – where there are four councillors. Eight candidates are challenging the four sitting councillors in Ward 5, for a total of 12 candidates in that ward.
