City councillor Dave Mendicino has filed his nomination papers to run for re-election for North Bay council this fall.
If elected it will be his fifth term on council.
“I’m incredibly proud of the work we’ve done in the last term,” says Mendicino. “Working with our community partners, we have seen increased job and population growth as North Bay is increasingly becoming a desirable place to relocate. We are continuing to work on initiatives for a safe and healthy community, elevating the creative sector, refreshing the downtown and waterfront, and the best is yet to come.”
Mendicino says, in a news release, that he has three key messages for this upcoming election.
“If re-elected for a fifth term, there are three areas I would like to focus on for the constituents of North Bay, which are community safety and wellbeing, the affordability of living in this great city, and accountability in my role as councillor.”
Mendicino lists community initiatives such as the re-energizing of Downtown North Bay & Waterfront, Creative Industries, Business Retention and Expansion, and the development of transitional supportive housing for individuals living with mental health and addiction issues as accomplishments.
Mendicino grew up in the central and Pinewood area of the city and is a graduate of Scollard Hall and Fanshawe College.
