Tommyboy Runs For Mayor

First hat tossed into ring; Farmers’ Market manager to run for city council (link removed because it no longer works):

Tom Pink has kicked off the race for Owen Sound city council with an entry motivated by curiosity and an interest to serve the city.
Pink, 38, said since he has the luxury of time to spend considering the city’s business, he wants to step forward to do the work as a councillor.

I added the emphasize. I thought that was funny. To quote Tom:

When you get involved with the city on the committees and stuff, there’s only so much you know or only so much you can do and the next step, if you’re curious or interested in it, is to go on council where you’re actually fully involved.

I like that “and stuff” bit: he didn’t mention the Hells Angels and the Communist Party of Canada .

I hope the local electorate doesn’t get wind of this post.

Update (Nov. 14, 2006): Tommyboy won. To quote him:

What the fuck have I done….I got on…last spot…beat the incumbent by 250 votes…only new guy to get on..

  1. Communist Party of Canada? Are they Communist or Socialist? I always thought they were different ideologies and Canada fit into Socialist political view. Remember capitalism is an economic and not a political ideology.

  2. You know, this is the last we’ll hear of Tom around these parts. Now that he’s become (or is becoming) a respectable citizen, one whom recieves the title “The Honourable” before his name, I’m pretty sure he can’t afford to be seen around lowlifes like us — hanging around a blog of all things.
