“Looking ahead, especially after a difficult couple of years, I’m hoping to continue making our city the best it can be alongside every citizen and business that’s here,” Guthrie tweeted.

Guthrie is seeking his third term as mayor, having been first elected to the top seat on city council in 2014. Prior to that, he represented Ward 4 for four years.

In 2014, Guthrie defeated incumbent mayor Karen Farbridge by nearly 5,500 votes. In 2018, Guthrie was re-elected with over 66 per cent of the ballots against only one other opponent.
